Paws on my Heart, Inc. is a Federal 501(c)(3) non-profit Indiana-based feline rescue group. Our mission is to rescue cats and facilitate re-homing, relocating, and finding them furever homes. We strive to make a lifelong connection with both the adopters and the kitty cats! We work in Hamilton, Marion, and Delaware Counties, and many places in between.
Our cats are all spayed/neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on their FVRCP (distemper) vaccines, and given general de-wormer. Most of our cats are FeLV/FIV tested, and rabies shots are given to most cats over 3 months old.
We always have many available cats up for adoption. Since we are a foster-based rescue, most of them are with a foster and there are always several in the Carmel Petco Adoption Room at 2160 E 116th St in Carmel, IN.
Meetings can be arranged to meet the kitty of your dreams! We also bring in new groups of cats and kittens to Petco every Saturday. Come meet our furry friends, wonderful volunteers, and head Cat Rescue Lady, Martha Strong.

We do NOT support or allow declawing of our cats. We often have cats that come to us already declawed and can consider placing them in a family that prefers a declaw. Declawing often leads to behavior issues such as aggression and improper litter box habits, as well as stress on the cats’ feet and legs. We offer free nail trims for our adoptees at the Carmel Petco most Saturday afternoons.
Our rescue's cats and kittens have led a mostly difficult life, so we require them to be indoor cats.
Our adoption application includes our rescue's terms and policies. If you have any questions, please let us know.
