Heavenly Paws Animal Rescue, Inc. is a 501 (c) non-profit, all-volunteer, no-kill feline rescue.
Angeline Behrendt, a trained Veterinary Technician, has provided care for sick, injured, and homeless animals for many years in her home. She founded Heavenly Paws Animal Shelter, Inc. in 2004 to expand her services and provide safe and secure homes for more cats.
Heavenly Paws Animal Shelter is not a true brick and mortar shelter. We have a network of foster homes to take in and care for homeless cats until permanent, loving homes can be found, offering a second chance of a lifetime of love and happiness. We also strive to help humans understand the importance of controlling the pet population through spaying and neutering.
Heavenly Paws Animal Shelter relies on private and corporate donations to help fund our rescue operations and accomplish our mission. We do not receive any government funding and no one in our organization receives any of the money that comes into our shelter. All funds are used to properly operate the rescue and provide housing, treatment, and medical care for our cats and kittens.
Heavenly Paws Animal Shelter has treated and saved many cats in challenging situations, including numerous cases of distemper, as well as other serious health problems, illnesses, injuries, and some of the most severe cases of neglect and abuse. All of our volunteers have pledged to rescue as many cats and kittens from the streets as possible with the space and funding we have available. We will always be committed to saving lives, one stray at a time!
Welcome to the Heavenly Paws Animal Shelter's adoption process. The first step towards adopting one of our special babies is to fill out our simple one page application. We will be in touch within 24 hours after receiving your application.
Each one of our cats are tested for leukemia and aids, receive their initial vaccines (distemper), vet check-up as needed, treatment for fleas, worms, parasites, ear mites, and their nails trimmed. If the cat/kitten is old enough they may have more done for them, such as, rabies vaccine and second distemper vaccine.
If they are old enough prior to adoption they will be spayed or neutered. If not, you will be given a spay/neuter certificate for one of our local vets we work with.
Our business office is located in Seven Valleys (York County, PA).
Since we are a non-profit, any donations and adoption fees are a tax-write off for you.
At in-tack all our cats spend time in one of our foster homes until they are ready for adoption.
