Welcome to PAWS - The Pamlico Animal Welfare Society
PAWS NEW LEASH ON LIFE Dog Training Program at the Pamlico Correctional Institution in Bayboro, N.C., rescues shelter dogs, then teaches carefully selected inmates to become experienced dog trainers. Upon an inmate’s release, he will have the skills and confidence to find a job working with and caring for animals. It’s win-win-win: Employable men making fresh starts, happy, well-trained family dogs, and lucky new pet parents. You could be a lucky pet parent, too!
CALLIE Has Been Adopted!
Our latest trainees, Callie and Truffles, have been adopted into wonderful new homes. They will graduate on May 22 and join their new families after the festive, one-year anniversary graduation ceremony celebrating the New Leash on Life Program at the Pamlico Correctional Institution in Bayboro, North Carolina.
The third time was the charm for dainty Callie, a very smart, lovable Yellow Lab mix whose recently deployed Marine returned her to the shelter she was adopted from. Callie has that “special something” which got her noticed and rescued – twice!
Drafted into the Pamlico County Correctional Institution’s “New Leash on Life” Bark Brigade, her lucky family will be proud to call her their own.
Everyone needs a New Leash dog. Keep checking this website, TownDock.net, PetFinder.net, the Pamlico News and Sun Journal for bios and photos of our next two dogs. They will enter the program on May 22, and in eight short weeks be ready for their new families. Maybe Yours?
All dogs are carefully matched for the best fit with their new families, so it takes a little time to review applications and arrange meetings and home visits. If selected, your family can attend your dog’s graduation ceremony in July.
TRUFFLES Has Been Adopted, Too!
This charming young Cocker Spaniel/Irish Setter miss will sweeten her new family’s life. She is 18 months old, petite at about 30 pounds, with silky auburn coat, liquid brown eyes and a happy smile. They could not resist those soft, shiny ears.
The New Leash on Life dog-training program provided Truffles with a second chance to find a new family to loves her back. Her mission? Become a well-mannered, obedient family pet with advanced obedience and agility skills, earn her AKC Canine Good Citizen award, and go to a great new home.upon graduation.
