Wilson’s ADOPTION SUCCESS Story – PAAWS RI

wilson's adoption success story!

We are pleased to announce this update on Wilson! 


As many of you know, Wilson has been hospitalized at our shelter since April. That’s a long time to be in a hospital, and it is because of our wonderful donors that Wilson has been able to recover so well.


When he came to us, he was missing more than half of the skin on his front leg between his elbow and his wrist. Poor Wilson was limping badly.


After three surgeries, and so many bandage changes that we have lost count, several rounds of antibiotics, and reconstructive surgery by a veterinary specialist, we are happy to report that Wilson’s leg is now 100% healed.

Wilson, finally home with family.

Recovery for Wilson has been a long road, but it ended in success, all due to the generosity of the PAAWSRI Community.


Wilson was then transferred to Scruffy Paws Animal Rescue to be adopted.  While he was patiently waiting for the right adopter to come along, he made friends with another shelter cat named Mac (the kitty on the right!).  The two boys became good friends and would hang out together whenever possible.


Finally, a wonderful person came along who wanted to adopt Wilson, and, to everyone’s surprise, she adopted Mac too.  A very happy ending for all!


A very special thank you goes to all the awesome people who donated to Wilson’s care.  Our PAAWS RI community raised over $600 for Wilson.  Thank you so much again for your support!

A big congratulations to Wilson and his new fur-ever home with his family- both fur and human!
