"My name is Gina and I live in New York City. I adopted Blaze (named Jumel on your site) who is a six month old male domestic tabby from Bronx Tails. Blaze was found behind a dumpster approximately five months ago. I was looking to add a kitty to our family and my search led me to AllPaws. When I saw (Jumel's) face, it struck a Blaze (hence his name) in my heart. The rest is His-story!! AllPaws is a great site for anyone looking to adopt a rescue family member!"

"I adopted Oscar and we are in LOVE! Oscar was originally rescued from a shelter and he was on the kill list due to his leg that was previously broken. He his running fine and does not display any discomfort...he is a happy dog and so loving to us all (even the mailman). Oscar found a warm place to call home... and in return, he warmed up our hearts for years to come. I am very grateful for your website and how you allow people to connect with wonderful animals that need a safe and warm home."
