We are an all-volunteer organization and your gift is tax-deductible under the law.
Our Mission is to provide help and hope for people who have come to a crossroads in caring for their medically challenged or elderly pets. Through support visits, education, and nutritional advice, we make every effort to help pet lovers keep their animals healthy at home. However, if the time comes when it is no longer possible to do so, Paws Place can provide a safe, secure place in a foster home or at our sanctuary.
We have sheltered cats that came to us after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans; their health was compromised from the toxins they absorbed from the flood waters. We have taken in three cats from a woman who fell and hit her head, causing traumatic brain injury where she was no longer able to care for her cats. We fostered three cats from a family who found themselves homeless until they were back on their feet and able to bring their animals back home. One of the females was pregnant and delivered five kittens during their stay. Three have since been adopted and two are available for adoption and looking for homes. There are still others with kidney, heart, cancer, or dental issues.
These are just a few of the residents we have taken in when they had no other place to go. This is why we are here, what we do, and why we need your help. We are a sanctuary for those considered "unadoptable" due to age, health problems or behavior issues. Most of those with behavior problems come to us from a stressful, abusive home. Food and veterinary bills are our biggest expenses and we are dependent on the generosity of our supporters to continue our mission to provide these special needs animals with a safe place where they no longer have to live in fear, pain, or hunger.
