PAWS: Pets of the Week
After experiencing a long period of neglect, Hashbrown received the time she needed to recover and begin to trust again. Hashbrown became PAWS's front office dog and loves to say hello to visitors. She is never far behind when it's lunchtime and would love to join a new family in the New Year. 
8-year-old Terry is currently living in a foster home under PAWS's care. Even with health issues, Terry’s bubbly spirit has not been broken. He loves to go for (short) walks and is happiest on the couch or on his bed. This Senior boy could snooze for hours, as long as he's surrounded by his favorite stuffed friends!  
Two-year-old Harriet is always happy to see everyone at PAWS. Harriet adores people and loves to walk! She’s also a social pup who enjoys meeting new furry friends. Harriet plays well with both male and female dogs in the playgroup. She would fit well with a home that will continue to fill her social calendar. 
To find out more about these pets, go online to PAWS of Coronado, which operates the City’s Animal Care Facility.
