About Our Rescue Group:

PawsWatch is a group of volunteers that provides veterinary care and shelter to improve the lives of feral and unowned cats. Founded in 1997, PawsWatch is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Pawswatch has provided veterinary care to more than 13,000 cats as of 2011. Before the inception of PawsWatch, the life of cats found living in colonies in Rhode Island neighborhoods was bleak -- having to fight the elements of nature, living and reproducing in starvation and squalor, and often facing poisoning or mass roundup for death. Our goal is not to personally help every feral cat, but to teach Rhode Islanders to help the cats in their own neighborhoods.
There is new hope for feral and unowned cats through a new approach called TNRM which is proving to be a better way to treat this once condemned population. PawsWatch is part of a large and growing grassroots effort to transform "street cats" into healthy managed colonies, which decline through attrition. We provide resources, equipment, and guidance to make this goal possible. We believe that lasting change can come only from a widespread foundation of community involvement.

Our Adoption Process:

Pawswatch facilitates the adoptions through foster homes. Foster homes require a application and a donation fee.

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.
