About Our Rescue Group:

PAWS is a registered charity that has been providing unique assistance to all animals since 1972. We enforce a strict no-kill policy and are managed exclusively by devoted volunteers. We not only spay/neuter and vaccinate the cats we rescue ... we also blood test each and every one to either rule out or confirm FIV or FeLeuk. We are in the early stages of constructing a special shelter for the FeLeuk cats (who may never actually develop the disease but who must not interact with the others) and WE COULD REALLY USE YOUR HELP! Thank you :)

Come Meet our Pets:

We have an annual bazaar. Details to follow or you may contact Kim at kim@pawscanada.org

We conduct adoption interviews prior to inviting people to visit the cats in our shelter or in foster homes.

Our Adoption Process:

Telephone interview/questionnaire

In-home visit

Adoption agreement (which confirms that the animal must be returned to PAWS should the adoption prove not to be a success for any reason)

Fee/donation (tax deductible) to be discussed

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
