Purrs And Whiskers Shelter (PAWS), Inc. PAWS is a non-profit 501 (c) 3, all-volunteer organization. We are dedicated to helping cats and kittens through rescue, foster, and adoption activities. We find loving homes for unwanted, abandoned, homeless, or abused cats and kittens. Most of our volunteers work full time in addition to helping PAWS!! Please see our Special Needs Cats area, our volunteers are AMAZING!
Since our inception in 2000, we have found loving, caring homes for over 2000 cats/kittens. We finished out the end of 2008 with 2008 adoptions done (how's that for ironic). We usually adopt cats every Saturday at a local pet store (locations vary). Click here or call our adoption hotline at 321-795-6306 to find out “where” we will be on Saturday. We have wonderful cats and kittens of all colors, shapes, sizes, and ages. Each of our felines has had all their medical requirements tended to --- we work with several veterinarians that ensure this.

We are not government-funded. If you would like to donate money, please use the "Donations" page or use any of the "PayPal Donate" or "Donation Form" links on our site.
