AWSOM Pet of the Week – Chico

This week’s featured animal from Stroudsburg’s Animal Welfare Society Of Monroe (AWSOM) animal shelter, is a cat named Chico.

Chico is a 5-year-old, adult Domestic Shorthair cat. 

He has been at the shelter for only a short time.

He is described as very friendly and loving, known for being very playful, and getting along well with humans and cats.

Chico has no bite history, has been neutered, and is up to date with his shots.

Chico does have Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), however, this does not stop Chico from living a healthy and normal life. FIV is only transmissible through blood-to-blood contact within felines and cannot be given to humans regardless of contact, allowing Chico to still be a candidate for homes with other cats.

Chico is ready to move into his new home. He can become part of your family today for $80.



Stroudsburg’s Animal Welfare Society Of Monroe serves as a temporary home for animals waiting to join a family. AWSOM is open every day from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM, appointments are required for week-day visits and walk-ins are welcome Friday through Sunday. AWSOM provides shelter and medical care for companion animals where they are free from abuse, hunger, fear, and loneliness until placing the animals in responsible forever homes. AWSOM aims to provide a lasting safe haven and shelter for unwanted companion animals throughout Monroe County, PA. They seek to end the cycle of pet overpopulation through widespread education about – and practice of – spay and neutering. They strive to provide the community with high-quality and affordable veterinary care. Their dream is of a future where the unnecessary killing of homeless pets is rejected nationwide.
