Pets are available for adoption through , an O'Fallon based volunteer group working to save homeless dogs and cats. All pets are kept in foster homes, where they receive the care they need to help prepare them for a permanent home.
All Paws is supported solely by private donations and fundraisers. If you're interested in adopting an animal, you can browse their website or attend one of their weekend adoption events at area stores. Last year they adopted out close to 300 pets.
This week's featured pet:
Hootie is a one-year-old female Sheperd mix. All-Paws volunteers say she is very active and loves running and playing with another dog. Volunteers say they do not think she would be happy without another dog. Hootie is a smart dog and has had some obedience training. She would need a fenced yard to contain her exuberance.
