Sadly, PAWS has seen a large increase of cats coming into our shelter due to pet guardians losing their own homes.
About a week and a half ago we received 11 cats who were left in an apartment for a month after the renters were evicted. None of these cats were spayed or neutered and one cat was nursing 4 newborn babies. She and her little ones are now in foster care.
Our veterinary team spayed and neutered the rest of the cats and now they're available for adoption. These cats are very well-socialized with other cats and would be great for adopters who are looking for a pair to go home together.
On the same day we received the 11 cats, we also took in two lovely black cats from another apartment complex whose tenant was evicted. The cats had microchips, so we contacted the cat’s guardian only to find that she was homeless herself, living in her car, and unable to care for her kitties.
And last week, a man brought in a stray cat who was wandering around for a month after his guardians were evicted from the property. The man started feeding the cat and realized he had been finding shelter in the vacant home

Adoption Fees Reduced
To help with this influx of cats at our shelter, we decided to continue our reduced adult cat adoption special to encourage people to adopt now. Through the month of September, the fee for adult cats 6 months and older is $75 and for cats 7 years or older, it's $35. If you’re ready to welcome a new feline friend into your life, now is the perfect time!
