You can help us adopt......

BLAKE (Mountain Lion)
In 1993, Blake was confiscated from his owners who had purchased him as a pet. He had been declawed and was kept in a house and fed an improper diet. When he began chewing the furniture, he was disciplined and kept in a small box. By the time he came to PAWS, his spirit had been totally broken and he showed absolutely no aggression. His ability to show aggression seems to have returned and he spends much of his time curiously watching the elephants and sleeping in the sun.

HARRIET (Hamadryas Baboon)
Born in a zoo, Harriet was a surplus baby there, so she was sent to another zoo at two months of age. Since baboons are social animals with strong family ties, the separation from her mother was a very traumatic experience for Harriet. At one year of age, she was then fated to be sent to a research facility. Her keeper, after reading Pat Derby's book The Lady and Her Tiger, contacted PAWS to take Harriet immediately.

MICA (Wolf)
Mica, a female wolf, escaped from a breeding compound. Animal Control chased her for serveral days. She was captured with a tranquilized dart which embedded in Mica's shoulder and shattered. She became very sick and terrified and would not eat. She was then transferred to PAWS where a veterinary team from UC Davis required four visits to fix her shoulder. As a result of her experience, Mica is afraid of people.

LENNY (European Brown Bear)
Lenny was part of the same show as Pooh. Although their species are not usually compatible, Pooh and Lenny were close friends due to traveling in the circus together for so many years. Lenny has a spacious enclosure complete with a hot tub for bathing.

CHICO (Wallaroo)
When we received a call from a teacher in San Jose asking if we could take a neutered male wallaby, we almost shouted yeees! Although some species of the kangaroo family are solitary, we have long felt that little Willy needed a companion. This call provided the perfect companion for Willy. Chico had been delivered to the Center for Agricultural Science and Technology Applied Zoological Program at Pioneer High School in San Jose, California by his owners who had been keeping him as a private pet until he matured and became troublesome to maintain. He had been kept at the High School for the past six years.

Chico arrived on August 4th, 1998 and we placed him in a temporary enclosure next to Willy. Within days the two had socialized and they are now sharing Willy's large enclosure. Although Chico is much bigger than our little Willy, Willy appears to be the dominant one of the pair. When Chico strayed too close to Ed Stewart, Willy's favorite person, Willy chased him away. They both seem to enjoy having a companion and spend long hours grazing and resting in the tall grass. Most wallabys are nocturnal so the two are more active early in the morning and late in the evening. Chico is eight years old, Willy is now three.

SHASTA (Mountain Lion)
Originally someone's pet, Shasta was confiscated by the Department of Fish and Game because it is illegal to have mountain lions as pets in California. He stayed in their holding compound for about a year, where he was used to teach trainees how to trap and tranquilize mountain lions. Relocated to PAWS a year later and now 10 years old, he is still learning to trust people.
