Facts about Morris

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tan Or Fawn (Mostly)
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 2090

Morris is one of three brothers that were found abandoned in a bird cage at 5 weeks old. They were put in foster until they were 2 months old before entering the shelter on 9/9/16. These three guys have grown into very friendly kittens. They love to say hello to visitors of our kitten room. Sometimes even stepping on to a person's shoulder from our cat shelves to purr next to their ear.

He can sometimes be mistaken for Miles but his "mittens" are a dead giveaway it's Morris. He was the first of the kittens to trust people and is still very receptive to new people. He will hop in your lap to say hello.

About Placing Animals Within Society: P.A.W.S.

About Our Shelter...

We are a small no-kill shelter founded in 1990. We are the only shelter in the county and rely solely on donations and the sales from our thrift store. We are small enough that each dog (15 max) and each cat (16 max) get individual attention. We have created a home-like environment in our shelter to give the animals as close to a real home while they wait to be adopted. HSUS had dubbed us "the little shelter that could" when the state rep came out and saw all that we accomplish as a very small organization. We have adopted out over 2,500 animals and have financially assisted the community in over 9,000 spay/neuter surgeries. We have 2 full-time staff and rely on volunteers to help us with all there is to do. Volunteers are very important to the success of P.A.W.S. and there are many opportunities not only at the shelter, but in our thrift store, fundraising, administrative, festivals and media contact.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Thanks to our small staff and a couple of very dedicated volunteers, we have a wonderful group of socialized and happy dogs and cats at the shelter. We are open to the public Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. just a 2 minute drive from downtown Bryson City. Give us a call for more info at 828-488-0418 and say you found us on!

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fee is $65 for a cat or a dog unless we have incurred significant medical expenses. We do not adopt out dogs as guard dogs, or animals that will be "outside only" pets. Our feline residents are required to be adopted as inside-only pets.
