Our Mission

P.A.L.S. is a no-kill cat shelter that began in 1980 as a non-profit, charitable organization. No public funds support this organization. P.A.L.S. is supported by memberships, fund-raising, memorial gifts, donations, and bequests. Your support is greatly needed. The shelter's living space consists of several rooms where the cats roam freely and have access to enclosed outdoor pens. Occupancy can range from 150 - 175 cats at any given time. Adoption hours are 8:00 am - 2:00 pm Friday through Monday and 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Tuesday through Thursday. We are closed snow days and holidays. PALS is open by appointment only for intakes and adoptions. Please call 395-4274 to schedule an appointment.
