What is paradise to a feral cat? (We all know what paradise is to a house cat!..laps, toys, petting and ...dinner!) What happens to cats who live and breed outside and who's kittens become feral, approximately 1/2 of all American cats? Without organized caregivers this can become a tragic situation of surviving cats having many litters of kittens a year - these cats and kittens starve, can become unhealthy, are afraid of close human contact and make kind people wonder why somebody isn't doing something about it. Practicing humane TNR (trap/neuter/return) is what Paw! is about - we do it out of passion and conscience, saving tax payers many 1000's of dollars a year and have healthy (and fortunately dwindling numbers) of some very happy felines! Feral cats DO have a home – outdoors!
Some of our colonies have abandoned sweet indoor cats that wait for the caretaker of the colony to arrive everyday and are able to be petted and picked up. These cats and kittens are absolutely 100% adoptable ! Please contact us for more information.
We also like dogs but un-neutered cats breed so fast that we have more cats.

Rescued kittens and cats for great and grateful pets!
Our animals are mostly kittens rescued from the woods. Their Moms have been trapped, neutered and returned to the wild if truly feral (not socialized to human activity). The kittens are acclimated to humans, tested for diseases and given all shots and neutered before adopting out.
