Please consider a donation via PayPal. All donations help cover the cost of food, medicine, veterinarian fees, and anything else we may need at the shelter! 

PAWS is a 501c3 non-profit, no-kill, and an all-volunteer run cat and kitten rescue.

Our rescue group began at the pound in Lebanon in 2003. In 2011, we had the opportunity to open our own shelter. We work closely with animal control officers, veterinarians and other rescue groups to help as many cats and kittens as we can. 

We, like most other shelters, are usually full.  However, we want to help every cat in need and will do our best to accommodate them, so please call and speak to us about your situation.  We have limited space at the shelter and we utilize foster homes to help with pregnant cats, mothers with kittens and orphan kittens. 


             Thursday:    11 AM to 3 PM
             Friday:          4 PM to 8 PM
             Saturday:     11 AM to 3 PM

You may also call or email to arrange for another time. We will do our best to accommodate you.
