Local animal control facilities call us almost every day, begging no-kill groups to take kittens destined for "death row". We can only rescue if we have the foster volunteers who can care for them for a few weeks, until they're old enough to adopt. If you're interested in keeping some kittens in your home for two to six weeks, please call or text 214-763-0001. We can provide you with litter boxes, food bowls, and toys.
Discount Adoption Fees for Retirees
If you're 60 or better and thinking of adopting a cat, ask us about our lower adoption fees for mature adoptors. It's better than the 2 for 1 early dinner special at IHOP! Adoption fees for seniors begin at $50 - a $45 discount - and if you adopt an older or "special needs" cat, you may qualify for an even lower fee.
Acceptance Policy Revised August 2013
Due to monetary constraints and the kitten season, we are unable to accept any new cats/kittens at this time. Please contact one or more of the other DFW-area groups listed here at Petfinder by clicking on the "Shelter and Rescue Groups" link at the top of Petfinder's home page (you can search by zip code).
If you are able to keep your cat or kitten while we help you look for a new owner, e-mail us at hairball AT texaspawprints DOT org.
Who We Are
We are a small, informal 501(3)(c) non-profit rescue group. We specialize in rescuing cats and kittens deemed unacceptable by animal control facilities and other groups.
These animals may simply be the wrong color - for example, black cats often take longer to rehome - or they may have special needs. They may be FIV positive, have a chronic medical condition or physical scars acquired before rescue, or recovering from an abusive past.
We welcome new volunteers in any capacity, and promise to be really nice to you and to buy you a Starbucks as often as possible.
Adopting a Lifetime Friend
Our adoption fee is $95. Before being offered for adoption, each cat or kitten will receive at least one set of vaccinations, a blood test for FIV and Feline Leukemia, plus treatment for fleas and worms if needed. Spay and neuter surgeries are included in the adoption fee. We do not adopt pets out unless they have been spayed or neutered.
NEW! We've expanded to Rockwall! Visit the Rockwall Petsmart and check out the adoption center, where we keep up to six cats and/or kittens for you to meet. We also do "live" adoption events on the first and third Saturday of each month at the Rockwall Petsmart, from 1 to 6 pm. .
We're also at the Petsmart at 5500 Greenville Avenue every Sunday from 2 to 5 pm.
If you're considering adopting a cat or kitten you've seen in our Petfinder listings, let us know and we'll make sure to bring them to Petsmart for a personal introduction.
Our e-mail at hairball AT texaspawprints DOT org is checked daily.
