As a no-kill shelter, we specialize in helping cats that would typically get euthanized in other shelters. We are proud to help all of the cats that wouldn’t have a chance otherwise. Unfortunately, they tend to come with large vet bills or specific medical requirements to help them live happy lives in their foster homes for long periods of time.
Below are listed some of our long-term fosters and their specific needs. These cats are not currently available for adoption and may live the remainder of theirs lives in our care. If you are interested in sponsoring one of these kitties, please take a look at our donation page for more information.
Mama Cat is a snuggly 10+ year old spayed female. Mama Cat was found outside and pregnant. After she had her babies, she was left behind by her “owner.” I can’t imagine why anyone would leave Mama Cat behind, because she is the sweetest girl you will ever meet! She loves to talk, snuggle and have her head rubbed. She loves laps to lay on and soaking up the sun!!!! If you are looking for a calm, sweet, cuddle bug… Mama the cat for you!!! Mama Cat is currently being cared for in a foster home.
Lester was adopted and returned 3 times for peeing in the house. He currently is enjoying life as an indoor/outdoor cat at a foster home. When it is nice out, he doesn’t want to come in. When it is freezing cold, he decides to come in and immediately pees on the floor! Other than his potty issues, Lester is an exceptionally sweet boy.
When he originally came to us, we believe that his had been hit by a car. He was missing teeth on the left side of his mouth and had to have surgery to have a pin put in his knee cap. We have tried everything to correct his potty issues, but anytime he is inside he backs up against the wall and sprays.
Since Lester is unadoptable, he will be safely cared for as an indoor/outdoor cat with Heavenly Paws
Sissy, “Teet teets”. Sissy is one of our senior long term residents, she is very sweet but likes to have her own space. We aren’t sure exactly what’s wrong but she walks in circles and only turns to the left, she also does not use a litter box. She has been to the vet multiple times for her issues and even the vet can’t figure it out. She’s very happy in her foster home.
Lincoln is still waiting for his forever person, or family, to scoop him up. Lincoln is a special boy. He has a sweet and loving personality with a slight quirk – he bites. He is around 5 years old and a chunky boy with a half tail. He loves to rub on your legs, but doesn’t want to be touched. He will lick your fingers and knuckles. He truly is a sweetheart who gets overstimulated due to pain and shows his excitement by biting. Our hearts are heavy for him because we know how great of a kitty he is but this quirk makes him hard to adopt. The vet says that his tail was previously broken and is compressed at the base of his spine which is what is causing him pain. If you love a sassy sweetheart with a big personality and a lot of love and love bites to give – please consider him. The rescue, including volunteers, just love him. He should not go to a home with small children but can adjust to cats and dogs.
Jackson AKA “Jack”
Jack is an amazing 2 year old boy that is a bit shy and slow to trust people. When you finally do gain his trust he open up like a book. He is a bit flirty and cavalier. He will love on you at times and pull away at others. He loves attention and looks forward to treat time. He loves to play with his kick toys and sounds like a horse running around the room. Jack would love a friendly cat sibling.
