The cost of caring for all of our rescue cats and kittens is high and not covered by our adoption donation. Typical costs associated with providing veterinary care for a new cat or kitten is around $300.
In order to support the shelter we have ongoing fundraising activities.
If you would like to support the shelter but are not in a position to adopt a cat or kitten, please consider making a monetary donation to the shelter. With a $100 donation, you will be able to sponsor an adoption, but any amount will help our cause.
We are a 501c3 non-profit organization so your donation is tax deductible. We also participate in matching grant programs with Pfizer and Phoenix Insurance and other companies, so if you work for a company that has a matching grant program, you can designate us as your charity of choice and the company will match your donation. Also, if your employer has a matching program, you can request that we be added to their list of eligible charities.
Monetary donations can be made by check, payable to:
PO Box 191
Eastford, CT 06242

P.A.W.S. ADOPT A CAGE PROGRAM
If you have a pet or a person that you would like to honor or memorialize with a monthly donation to P.A.W.S. we have a great program for you. For a minimum monthly donation of $10 or more you can sponsor a cage at the shelter. Your monthly donation will help cover the food, shelter and vet needs for a kitty that is a resident of your sponsored cage. Donations can be made either via Paypal where you can choose automatic deduction or you can mail your check to the shelter. The cage that you will sponsor will be tagged with a sign which you can customize with whatever you wish to have on it. Businesses and other organizations are welcome to sponsor cages as well! You will be sent a picture of the current resident of your cage each month along with an update of how they are doing while they await their "forever" home. Please click on the link below for registration form. You can fill it out and send it back to us. So far we have 13 cages that are sponsored! If you have questions please contact Lisa Lund at LJL6744@yahoo.com or 508-612-5735.
