Paws Rescue thankful for successful 2011

Published 1:01 am Saturday, January 14, 2012

Paws Rescue appreciates the continued support and encouragement of the Vicksburg and Warren County community as it fulfills its mission to rescue stray and abandoned community pets, restore them to health and place them in adoptive homes.

Paws Rescue had its most successful year ever in 2011. There were 399 cats and 91 dogs spayed or neutered and vaccinated, 98 pets were adopted and Paws Rescue provided heartworm treatment to 12 dogs. Eleven lost pets were reunited with their owners and Paws Rescue volunteers rescued more than 40 pets from the Vicksburg Animal Shelter in May during the historic Mississippi River flooding.

Paws Rescue, Vicksburg-Warren County’s only no-kill animal rescue, is thrilled with its accomplishments of 2011 and will continue to work in 2012 to improve the lives of community homeless animals.
