Precious Paws Rescue & Adoption, Inc. is a 501-C3 non-profit organization who operates a "NO KILL" shelter and adoption service for homeless, abandoned and unwanted mother cats and kittens The shelter is operated by a group of dedicated volunteers who provide the cats emotional and wellness care until such time as a suitable home can be found.

Precious Paws operates in less traditional ways whereby animals are provided with a home like environment versus confinement in cages. We realize that confining animals in small spaces especially long term causes extreme anxiety for most cats, therefore we have created several group settings in cage -free community rooms that allow cats to socialize, and play in a normal setting which alleviate stress and helps transition them into permanent homes.

The community rooms are brightly lit and well designed. Each one allows the cats ample room to, run, climb, perch or lounge. One might think they have it made when they come to us so we want to make sure when they leave, they will have a forever home that offers love and compassion. Upon intake cats are checked for parasites, properly de-wormed, vaccinated, tested for leukemia/FIV and monitored until it is safe to transition them into a group setting. Cages are used for a limited time for new intakes during assessment but most animals are able to transition into a cage free area fairly soon. We strongly advocate spay neuter to reduce overpopulation of unwanted animals therefore all our cats are sterilized by the time they reach the age of 5 months. Anyone adopting a kitten that is too young to be fixed must abide by our spay neuter policy to qualify for adoption. .
