Needless to say, she walked out shortly... [read more]

  • Mulder is a very friendly and curious little dog. He loves checking out the neighborhood during walks and always seems to notice new additions to every home or landscape.

  • A dog with nine lives? While Donte has had more than his share of challenges, he continues to impress his family and the staff of PVS with his resiliency.

  • Opal was adopted this past October, when her owner decided to celebrate her birthday by going to the Humane Animal Welfare Society (HAWS) with her friend to look at kittens.

  • When Parker was born three years ago, his owners were very excited. They watched the litter grow in pictures until they were old enough to meet new people.
