There are thousands of animal rescue organizations, all working for the same purpose. We are an all volunteer non-profit organization and we hope through our efforts, we will make at least a small difference and save a few lives with proper care in the process.

With your support, we can continue to accomplish this mission. We operate completely with the help of our generous sponsors and volunteers. We couldn’t do it without all of you!

Since our inception in 2004, Heavenly Paws Animal Shelter, Inc. has rescued, rehabilitated and found loving, forever homes for over 500 cats each year. You can find some of our successful adoption stories in our Facebook photo album, Happy Tails.


It is very unfortunate to say that Heavenly Paws has really taken a huge hit with Pet Valu closing, causing us to lose 5 satellite stores which provided the majority of our food and litter as well as several thousand dollars worth of cash each year.

Now one of our veterinary hospitals we rely on majorly for our spay and neuters has tripled in price, making it no longer affordable for us.

If you know of any veterinarians in the Dover, Spring Grove and York area that will do low-cost spay and neuters for us please let us know. We cannot use TNR programs. We are also looking for any stores that may be willing to donate food and litter to us throughout the year. Thank you very much.
