Birna’s Story

Scared and malnourished, Birna was found by PAWS volunteers wandering about in the creek right next to the shelter. She was so thin that her ribs showed and her white fur looked gray.

Volunteers have long wondered if she was mistreated in the past as it was very likely. Despite that, she has remained good-natured and affectionate. One thing is for sure — this sweetheart deserves all the love she can get!

Ideal Home

Birna is almost completely blind. She needs a safe space where she’s unlikely to trip and fall. Due to her age, a quiet and laid-back home would be ideal for her. She still enjoys the occasional outdoor walk, but what she really prefers is a companion to chill with.
