On Tuesday, Nov. 11, the City celebrated five years of its unique public-private partnership with PAWS of Coronado, by throwing a party at the Coronado Animal Care Facility. All of us at PAWS of Coronado are grateful to our City leaders for supporting the vision of our founder, Louise Shirey, whose nearly 20-year dedication to our community’s animals led to our partnership beginning in November 2014. Today, Coronado’s Mayor, City Manager and Councilmembers, the Coronado Police Department and the City’s Public Service Department work tirelessly with PAWS of Coronado to return lost animals to their human companions and to find forever homes for Coronado’s strays.

It is with great awareness of our privilege to serve this community that we thank City Manager Blair King and his team including Janine Zúñiga and Michele Miller, Mayor Richard Bailey, Police Chief Kaye and Captain Waczek, Coronado Arts team led by Kelly Purvis and our Public Service Department for celebrating our relationship in such style! A very special thank you goes to Coronado High School and art teacher, Laura Hill for lending us five talented young artists who created a beautiful chalk art painting of a Great Dane, who they aptly named Cinco.

With appreciation from our dedicated board, staff and volunteers.
