9 Year Old Violet Pietrowski Supports Passion 4 Paws!

While Hurricane Sandy raged outside, 9-year old Violet Pietrowski kept herself busy by designing her holiday line of custom kitty necklaces (of which she donates 100% of the proceeds to Passion 4 Paws). You can purchase one of Violet’s necklaces via her mom Monica’s website at

Violet creates her wearable art from stickers, paper, and whatever else she can find. She mounts and glazes her designs onto acrylic pendants and hangs them on 20-inch black satin cords. Each Passion 4 Paws necklace is ready to ship and will arrive ready to give with a card explaining the donation in Mon Chi Tree gift packaging. Mon Chi Tree represents energy and soul, and Violet certainly has both!

Earie: A Very Special Cat

Earie is one of those special animals you never forget once you've met them. He is available for adoption or sponsorship. Sponsorship donations will help cover the cost of treatment for his on-going ear infections. Watch his video and meet this wonderful cat.

Please stop by the Mon Chi Tree booth at Putnam Rotary Park during the NECT Great Pumpkin Festival & Craft Fair this Saturday, October 20th, and support Passion 4 Paws by purchasing a kitty necklace created by 9 year old Violet Pietrowski.

The Power of 13

We would like to thank the Academy Players of RI and The Stage Door Project for raising money for Passion 4 Paws on Friday evening during the musical production of 13. The performers had amazing voices and their anti-bullying message was powerful. We had Neville there, and he wanted us to pass along a message from him: "13 was an amazing performance and the message really hit home, as I too have been judged unfairly and bullied in my life simply because I am a pit bull mix. Being treated unfairly makes me feel terrible, as I have never done anything to deserve it. It has in fact motivated me to become an advocate for all the wonderful pit bulls out there that aren't getting a fair chance in life simply because some people have preconceived notions regarding their breed. Bullying needs to end now! In our schools, in our shelters, in our communities. But it won't happen unless we all stand united in this belief. If you or anyone you know has ever been bullied, please LIKE this post and help us spread the word. If you have an opportunity, please go see 13 and support the Academy Players of RI. It was an excellent show and I am so glad I got to be a part of it and meet the cast."

The Story of Monique

Monique is a HIGHLY ADOPTABLE senior cat who thinks he's a kitten.  That's right.  Monique is a "he".  But as a senior, black cat his chances for adoption are significantly lower.  That's just the way it is in the harsh realty that is animal adoption.  This is Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week, and because the cards are stacked against him, we made Monique a little video so you can see just how awesome he is.

Meet Stretch

It's Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week. Stretch is not perfect, but he has a fabulous personality.  He loves people and other animals. Please share Stretch's video with your friends and let's see if we can't find him a loving forever home.


Please Help Bocelli Find His Forever Home

September 17-23 is Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable Pet week. Please help Bocelli find his forever home by sharing his video. He is a highly adoptable cat, he's just never been chosen before.



Meet Princess - Queen of the Cat Room

September 17-23 is Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable Pet Week.  Princess has lived at Passion 4 Paws for a long time. Sadly, she has never been chosen. She's a little persnickity, because she would prefer to not share her space with 25 other cats. She is one of the first cats to run and greet you when you enter the room. She loves human companionship, but she needs a home where "attitude" is respected and individuality appreciated. Please watch her video and share her story so she can find a loving home.
