PAWS & More is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.  Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law and makes a difference in the life of every cat and dog entering our shelter. Unless specified by you, your donation will go where it’s needed most in support of our mission to shelter and care for homeless animals.

This spring PAWS & More received a larger than expected intake of homeless cats and orphaned kittens. These are local cats and we did not turn any away. We currently have 80 more cats and kittens than our shelter can house. We hope that you would be willing to adopt a kitten or cat from us as soon as possible. If you cannot adopt a cat or kitten, please consider donating $40 to sponsor a spay or neuter surgery via the secure PayPal link here.

Online donations are accepted through PayPal.

Monetary donations may also be mailed to PAWS & More Shelter:
