We are a non-profit pet rescue focused on finding homeless and abandoned cats new loving homes with responsible owners. Most of our cats are surrendered to us by people who can no longer care for their pets or who find themselves the caretaker of a neighborhood stray and/or kittens. All our cats are spayed or neutered, tested for FeLV and FIV, vaccinated, fostered in a home setting and checked by a veterinarian before adoption.
We are a small group whose goal is to match responsible owners with the right pet. When our cats don't fit an adopters' specific needs we can provide them with information on appropriate pets available from other local rescues/organizations or individuals. We are also happy to lend our expertise and resources to anyone who is looking for a specific type of pet (breed of dog or possibly de-clawed cat) or looking to rehome their own pet or a stray that they have found. In some instances we can take the pet (especially a cat) if we have room or in most cases we simply guide the owner with responsible adoption placement and advertising tips.

Re-Homing A Pet
If you have a pet you need to re-home, please read the following:
If you adopted the pet from a rescue or at a local PetSmart, please contact the rescue first. Most rescues want the pet to be returned to them so they can find it a new home. If you no longer have the paperwork and you know where you adopted it we can help you locate the rescue organization.
PAWS-OK will always take cats we previously adopted back into our rescue. Please call or text our volunteer at (405) 204-3964 or e-mail us at email@example.com if you need to return a cat to us.
If you are wanting to surrender a cat to us for our program please be aware that our ability to accept cats is totally dependent on space available and we often times have a waiting list.
We will not be able to assist in the re-homing of any pet who is not spayed or neutered. We strongly suggest that you spay or neuter all kittens or cats you have BEFORE finding them a new home so that they do not contribute to the overpopulation crisis we are currently experiencing. We also strongly suggest you NOT offer any pet up for FREE and suggest that the minimum fee you request for a kitten cover the cost of the spay/neuter and vaccinations. Our LINKS page contains a list of low cost spay and neuter clinics that may help you.
Here are three downloadable documents to help you place your pet:
Ready to adopt?
The first step in adopting a pet from PAWS is to complete an
Adoption Request Form
This brief survey helps us understand your pet experience, home environment and personal preferences so that we can help you pick out the purr-fect cat for your lifestyle.
We have recently updated our Request Form so potential adopters can fill it out on line and send it back to us!
Dean is a 2-year old super friendly neutered male we rescued from the MWC Shelter. He had an abscess festering on his face that is healing and was very thin. He is gaining weight and will soon be ready for adoption.
Carley was returned to PAWS after her owner passed away in the fall of 2016. She tested FIV+ at that time (they had let her outside) and needs to be an only, inside cat in her new home. She is super friendly and loves to be brushed.
Maurice is a wonderfully friendly orange tabby who was returned to PAWS a few weeks ago. He has a condition that requires a special diet. Maurice is 2 years old and gets along with other cats, dogs and kids too!
