Meet Gwen, our pet of the week. Gwen is a 1-year and 9-month-old adult female Domestic Shorthair. She has been at the shelter for about a week. She is described as very friendly and calm, known for being very social and getting along well with humans, however, she is not good with dogs. Gwen has no bite history, has been spayed, and is up to date with her shots. She is currently available for adoption at Stroudsburg’s Animal Welfare Society Of Monroe (AWSOM) 

Gwen is ready to move into her new home. She can become part of your family today for an $80 adoption fee. WATCH VIDEO.


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.
