Thank you for considering the adoption of a cat or kitten from our rescue. PAWS provides shelter and care for stray, homeless, unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens with the goal of finding them loving forever homes.

In 2012, we placed over 450 cats and kittens into new homes.
In 2013, we placed 708 cats and kittens into new homes.
In 2014, we placed 736 cats and kittens into new homes. 
In 2015, we placed 901 cats and kittens into new homes.
In 2016, we placed 898 cats and kittens into new homes.

All of our available cats and kittens have been spayed or neutered, given vaccines, treated for fleas, de-wormed and received any other care that might have been necessary when they came into our shelter.

Most of our kittens have been spayed/neutered, but if you adopt a kitten that has not yet been fixed, you will receive a rebate for $50 with proof of spay/neuter. If you have any question about your rebate  please email

We want the cat or kitten to be right for your home and family. If for any reason the adoption does not work out or your circumstances change, even years later, and you can no longer keep and provide for the cat, we will always welcome it back.

Our adoption donation is $150 for kittens under one year, $125 for adult cats, and $75 for cats over 8 years old. This donation helps with the cost of their care and enables us to provide for the next ones that come into our rescue, as well as those that are currently at the shelter.

It is our policy that cats and kittens adopted from our shelter will be indoors only and never be declawed. 

Please fill out the attached application as completely as possible. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
