PAWS stands for Protecting Animal Welfare Society and they do just that with all of their animals in the area. Every now and then they will post on their Facebook page the available dogs and cats for adoption, and I get a kick out of the names they give the animals. They do such an excellent job naming the animals I feel the names really do match well with the animal's looks.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
