    We adopted Penny & Nickel almost 2 weeks ago and we wanted you to know that

    they are doing GREAT! They have integrated into our family very well and

    have been renamed Parker and Emma, respectively.

    Parker (Penny)  just walks all over everyone- literally and has won

    everyone over.  Emma was swatted by one of our older kitties the first week

    ( and has a little mark on her face - which the vet said is fine)! Now that

    is over with and everyone is playing and eating well together. 

    We have never adopted such well adjusted kittens!  Which is a testament to

    how hard you all worked to socialize them.  Bravo!!  Great job! We adore

    them.

    Thank you!!!

    Ginny & Pat Calento

    Paws Patrol would like to recognize Koraine and Ryder White for their rescue of a homeless and frightened kitten.

    Traffic was thick and moving fast on the I-10 going through Tucson, Arizona when Koraine White spotted a small kitten on the side of the highway.  As she pulled off the road, the kitten ran out into the traffic.  A car ran directly over top of it as it sat frozen in the middle of the road.  Untouched by the moving vehicle, the kitten continued on its path across the busy highway.  Koraine’s 14 year old son, Ryder, and his friend, Derek, jumped out of the car, and braving the oncoming traffic, followed the kitten.  

    The kitten, about eight weeks old, was terrified.  The boys managed to capture it and took it back to the car.  The kitten was bleeding from the eye and its face was swollen. 

    Koraine called Patti, at Paws Patrol.  Patti took the kitten to the vet who determined that it was either thrown out of a car or hit by a car.  The kitten was a young female, terribly frightened and bruised, but there were no broken bones or serious injuries.  Patti asked if the kitten had a name.  They boys named her “Highway” because they rescued her from the highway.  It’s an unusual name for a female cat but then we’re talking about teenage boys here……..

    Today Highway is in a safe and loving home. 

    It’s folks like this who make a difference for lost and endangered animals. Thanks, Koraine and Ryder! 

    Highway’s story is in Paws Patrol book, “From Feral to Family”, available through our website - or stop by the Green Valley Farmer's Market on Wednesday mornings.

    Paws Patrol would like to recognize Lincoln Wilson for his extraordinary concern and care for a wet and frightened cat.

    On a rainy December day in Tubac, Arizona, Lincoln hauled his trash to the local dump. He heard “cat noises” in the dumpster and looked down into the nearly empty bin where he saw a small cat sitting in an inch of water. He asked the atttendant for a ladder, but no luck. He then drove home, picked up an extension ladder and drove back to the dump (over five miles). He placed the ladder in the dumpster and, armed with a box and towel, descended to the bottom. He managed to place the towel over the cat and place it in the box. He then took it to his store (Tubac Old World Imports) and called Paws Patrol. Lincoln said he would have kept the cat, but had a guest that was seriously allergic.

    It’s folks like this who make a difference for lost and endangered animals. Thanks, Lincoln!
