Brownie Troop 932 Visits NAWS!
NAWS received a visit from local Brownie Troop 932, and it was so much fun to meet them! The girls took a tour of our facility and met our adoptable pets. They learned about the importance of spaying/neutering pets, and humane care for animals. What a cute Troop!!
Thank You Nuveen Investments!

Coco was brought to us to be euthanized a year ago because her owners did not want to deal with her allergies. She came to us after years of neglect, she had no fur left at all, and was left outdoors to fade away.
Coco was far too sweet for us to agree to this, and she deserved to have some time on earth surrounded by love and companionship, so we refused to euthanize her and made her our first Ambassador to live out her life in the NAWS Ambassador Club. She is now surrounded by staff, volunteers, and her own fan club that show her the love and care that she so much deserves. Please stop by any time to meet her and to share some cuddle time - she would love that!
