Update from Kyle Cordwell at the frontline
January saw the arrival of three new additions to the paws and claws family: Pepper a 3 month old kitten who settled into life in foster care really well; denzil a 3 month old staffy x who was a little shy at first and his brother dodger a staffy x who had no trouble settling into a foster home after a stay at the pound.
With a slow start to the year for adoptions we have seen four adoptions in the last month. Little Johnny the Jack Russell, Misty the cat, Dodger and Denzil. We hope they enjoy life in their new loving furever homes.

The past 5 months have not been easy for all involved with paws and claws, starting with the very hard and sad task of closing the paws and claws shelter at Lot 1 Captain Cook Hwy in Craiglie and finding temporary and forever homes for the remaining animals that called Paws and Claws home. Without a refuge to house the animals, we called on members of the public to foster the remaining animals, and new animals coming into the organisation. We have been extremely lucky to find the foster carers we currently have. However we are always in need of new foster carers for short and long term.
At this current time paws and claws has three cats and 9 dogs in care and everyday we are getting numerous phone calls to take in more animals.
