Donate a Bed
Our cats love to sleep on Kuranda cat beds, but we don't have enough for all of our quarantine cages. We also love the towers! They make great additions to our free roaming rooms at PURR! If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for a another cat to sleep in comfort, please donate a Kuranda cat bed.
PURR News
Come and meet the PURR babes! We have adoption events scheduled nearly every week and adoption specials are offered too! Please visit our Website for more information. We also have lots of news on events on our Facebook Page ! All of our adoptees are FIXED, VACCINATED, TESTED for felv and fiv, and de-parasited. They also have the option of having Avid Microchips implanted at no additional cost! These chips have a prepaid registration and no yearly fee. Adoption is the only option and it saves you money too! Save a life and save cash - wow that is a win/win!

The PURR Baby's are grateful for your donations!
P.U.R.R. West Virginia is a one of a kind shelter/rescue/sanctuary for cats and kittens. Open intake, we operate as a cat shelter covering all of West Virginia. Many counties don't have facility for cats, and many more have limited facility, making the chances for the cats bleak. P.U.R.R. also rescues cats and kittens from high kill shelters throughout West Virginia. We provide sanctuary for many less-adoptable or unadoptable cats and aging cats have a forever home here in our private facility. We also offer a "Furrever Foster" program for these cats, and place them in foster homes so they can enjoy the company of a family and the love of a home. P.U.R.R. West Virginia is a private non-profit cat shelter, and funded solely from donations and grants. There are many ways you can help us continue this amazing work. Please consider becoming a monthly donor, every dollar helps! Please contact us for information: donate@purrwv.org. Donate via paypal too. Kuranda beds are another wish list item for our babes who have to stay in cages or kennels because of illness or while being quarantined. These beds help the cats stay calmer and happier, sleeping and resting and getting some extra exercise too! thanks for your donations!
!" PURR-Baby Spotlight Joan Jett
Dumped last year in a Rock Band Box (popular video game), with her five kittens (all named after rock stars and homed in 2011), Miss Joan is a special babe. She is very gentle and loving but not assuming in the least! Joan is a maine coon mix, and her fur is spectacular! .

Puzzling how people can throw them away isn't it? PURR-sonal Information - Who we are?
P.U.R.R. West Virginia is a grass roots rescue effort, comprised of some loving people with a mission to change the fate of some of the abandoned and unwanted felines in the North Central West Virginia area. The focus of our effort is rescue and rehabilitation.
Social, emotional, mental and physical.
Bringing the abandoned and unwanted into our care means making the commitment to all four areas of a cat's being. We are dedicated to implementing new ideas in the area of population control, and reducing the misuse of euthanasia as a means to that end. Lorna is the Executive Director, Shelter managers Bonnie and Donna make the facility a wonderful place to visit and volunteer, and help the cats and kittens have the best shelter experience available! and a wonderful board of directors is behind the scenes doing outreach and growing the PURR. Rescue takes time, resources and dedication, but it is well worth the effort.
Although we know we can't take in all the cats, we can help one kitty at a time. We can educate and we can make a difference.
