ROCKY SAYS WE ALWAYS NEED MORE VOLUNTEERS.
Rocky really did sit down on that chair at our front desk
during one of his visits with his owner, a volunteer.
No trick photography was needed.
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
Okay, the roof's not hot, & it's not tin.
But don't we two look adorable sitting on it!

"Raindrops on roses" "Whiskers on kittens"

We've got the whiskers right here!
LOOK INTO MY EYES!
You will come to this shelter
and you will fall in love with one of us.
The Grateful Paw Cat Shelter is open

SATURDAY and SUNDAY 12:00 to 4:00 pm.
Call 631-757-4517 during those hours.
What greater gift than the love of a cat.
Remember, within the heart of every stray,
lies the singular desire to be loved.
Want to read the stories and
see videos of our dear cats?
Our cats and kittens are not in cages.
Our shelter is so nice. It's a Bed & Breakfast for cats.
You can walk around the main rooms
and have a seat on one of our benches.
You won't be alone for long!
Our cats are already spayed or neutered,
checked by a vet, had all inoculations.
(if over 4 months old),
and tested for FIV and FELV.
Who says you can't buy love?
We collect $100, either cash or check, for each cat.
Think about how much more money you'd spend
for spay/neuter, blood tests
and inoculations at the vet.
A two week health warranty is included.
Some special breeds may be more than $100.
Sorry we cannot take credit cards or give refunds.

Since there are many people who want to adopt but can't
for various reasons, we offer a sponsorship program.
Look at the photos above for Tricia with Zane,Tamara,
Sadie, Calcutta, Connie & Harley.
These cats have been with us for many years.
Some are not likely to ever be adopted,
so Grateful Paw is their home.
Zane is an angel now looking down on his dear buddies whom he loved so much.
For only $30 per year, you can sponsor a cat.
Your donation goes directly to the medical care of cats at our shelter.
You get a picture of the cat you are helping,
and you are welcome to visit your cat.
A great gift idea and a very meaningful
gift given in someone's memory.
DONATIONS of course are always welcome
Items such as Fancy Feast, Deli Cat dry food, catnip & treats,
paper towels, small paper plates, large kitchen or lawn bags,
bleach & detergent are always needed here.

Thank you girls!
Your scouts can arrange a visit

Your troop can work on a project
to raise money or advertise our shelter.
This can involve working towards
your animal care badge.
Or how about building cat condos for your Eagle Project!
And how about these awesome murals a troop painted

VISIT OUR GIFT STORE.
I'm Tex, & I just happen to sell
lots of what your cat needs,
like stylish collars here at our gift store.
Even if your pet stays in your house, you'd never
want him to accidentally scoot out un-tagged!
Please, tag or microchip your pets. Of course,
only one collar with a tag is needed for each pet.
