Observations with Dogs: Good with calm dogsObservations with Cats: Unknown Observations with Kids: Would probably be ok around gentle, quieter children.Currently Living at: DC FosterCheck out my adoption video: me on instagram: pawsitivity_dmv Sawyer is an absolute sweetheart! He is a very sweet, affectionate cat who enjoys being near humans. From belly rubs to chin scritches, he loves them all. He likes to seek out his fosters and request for pets and attention and melts on the floor in complete bliss once he receives this. Besides hanging out with the humans, Sawyer likes to spend most of his day sitting by the window, watching and listening to birds, perch on the cat tree and take naps during the day. He is a pretty vocal cat and will pretty much say “hello” anytime you enter the room unless he is taking a nap or bird-watching. He’ll talk to you when he is seeking food, cuddles, or attention. If he is seeking attention and you are busy, he will eventually stop after a few minutes and go about his day. His fosters recommend spending some time playing with him during the day to get some of his energy out. At 9 years old, Sawyer still has some energy for play. While he may not get the zoomies anymore, his fosters have seen him occasionally do light jogs up and down their hallway (it is adorable). While he can keep himself entertained for most of the day, Sawyer loves the company of humans! He enjoys playing with his chew toys and his tiered ball tower, and he would be more than happy to swat the chew toy from your hand or play a riveting round of passing the ball back-and-forth with you. Sawyer will make a great companion for someone who is looking for a sociable, affectionate cat! Although he does take some “me” time during the day, he would thrive in a home where his owners have enough time to hang out with him, whether it is active play sessions or just chilling on the couch with you. One thing we are certain of is that Sawyer is sure to bring a warm, loving presence Into your home.

The following are our applications:Dog application: application: PAWS Rescue does our best to provide accurate and complete information about our adoptable animals.  Please note that we cannot make any guarantees about age or breed; we rely upon our rescue partners and their veterinarians to make those assessments.  We also cannot make any guarantees about housebreaking and animal temperament, as animals can behave differently through transition and in different environments.Our shelter partners provide a basic vet screening for each animal we rescue, which includes necessary vaccinations, deworming, microchipping, and spay/neuter (unless the animal is too young or otherwise deemed by the vet to not be a good candidate for surgery). Please note that this is not a comprehensive medical exam and as such, may not identify any and all medical issues, though our goal is to flag any obvious health issues through the basic vet screening.  We share all medical records with adopters and are completely transparent about any known issues prior to adoption finalization.  ABOUT DC PAWS RESCUEOur rescue is an all-volunteer, foster-based dog and cat rescue in the DC area.  We rescue locally from Prince Georges County, MD, and from rural shelters in the south (presently Pickens County, Anderson County, and Greenville County in SC, and Raleigh County, WV).We partner with a local rescuer in Pickens County, SC, who saves adoptable cats and dogs from the three area shelters.  For the animals in this rural area, rescue is a critical lifeline, and often the only lifeline.  Our rescue partner not only works with DC PAWS to save as many dogs and cats as possible, but she has also established a successful spay/neuter program in the community to decrease the number of homeless and unwanted animals over the long term.FOSTER AN ANIMAL IN NEEDFosters make it possible for DC PAWS to save and care for homeless, neglected and abandoned animals!
