Increasing adoptions for our "no kill" shelters.

Meet Ms. Gordita Grande

If you love to laugh, you'll love Gordita! This sassy little lady might be tiny, but she's got one of the biggest personalities at PAWS. Gordita came in to the shelter obese and barely able to run, but now she can roll around, run through the adoption center, and sometimes plays fetch! She was diagnosed by our vets as having Cushings disease (develops when their body overproduces the steroid hormone, cortisol), but she doesn't let it slow her down at all. She takes pills every day to keep her stable, and is looking for an adopter who can keep up with her medication and continue to help her on her weight loss journey. Because Gordita is choosy about her animal friends, she'll do best in an adult household as the only animal. In exchange she'll repay you in hilarious antics, tons of personality, and adorable pig-like snorts every time she sniffs things! Reference ID: 05-4
