Welcome to Heavenly Paws Animal Shelter, Inc.

We are an all volunteer non-profit organization. We operate completely with the help of our generous sponsors and volunteers. We couldn’t do it without all of you!

If you are interested in adopting a cat please call or email and one of our volunteers will contact you with in 24 hours of receipt, except on weekends and holidays.

Unable to adopt, foster, or volunteer at this time, but still want to help? Weo are always looking for sponsors for our long term kitties. They often need special medical attention or special diets, which can be quite costly on the shelter. If you are interested in sponsoring or would like more information, please click here.

Please note that under no circumstances we are unable to take any owner surrenders; however, we would be happy to place a courtesy post under our Available Cats page for you. Please click here to contact us regarding your courtesy post. Thanks!
