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 follow these steps:
  • 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.
  • We prefer that requests for help with cats or dogs be directed to us via e-mail at pawsok@sbcglobal.net.  Please include: 
                            1. the origin of the cat you have.
                            2. the cats name and age
                            3. the reason it needs to be re-homed 
                            4. its' spay/neuter status, year of last vaccinations and if the cat is declawed
                            5. your contact information (daytime phone and e-mail address)
                            6. the time frame you need to find the cat a new home 
                            7. pictures of the pet. 
    Please be aware that our ability to accept cats is totally dependent on our space available and we often times have a waiting list.  We do not accept dogs     at this time but we can help you find an appropriate canine rescue to assist you or network a dog for you.     
    At this time, we can can only assist you in the re-homing of your adult pet by networking them through social media    
    Please be aware that 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 any 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. 
    We have provided information that you may use in screening potential adopters for your personal cat: 
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!  So if 
you are ready to adopt, download the form, complete it on 
your computer then send it back to us!  
SEEKING DECLAWED?
If you are thinking that you would like to have a declawed cat, pease contact us.  We regularily get notified of great declawed cats in need of new homes.  They don't do well in rescue or shelter environments (many don't like other animals). Adopting from the current owner can be a good option.  We can put you in touch with those owners/shelters
