Sponsor a Long Term Kitty

With being 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.

Here are some of our long-term shelter cats!


(14-275) Louie is a big, sweet, neutered, older guy around 14 years old. He is just a laid back snuggly lover. He loves to sleep in bed with you. Due to his IBS, we found it is best controlled on a strict wet food diet. Due to Louie’s healthcare, we thought it would be best to have him remain in our care. If you want to support Heavenly Paws & the Louie lifestyle, please sign up to be a sponsor!

Louie’s  special needs include his wet food diet & vet bills.


(15-103) 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.

William Fisher or Mr Fisher (18-175)

Mr. Fisher is a great 5-6 year old neutered male. He’s currently in foster care awaiting a complete dental and health work up. He is getting over tummy illness, but is otherwise in great shape. He is a very social boy who craves attention (and isn’t shy about vocalizing his demands!) Gentle Mr. Fisher is a fantastic lap cat and loves kisses on his little head.

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

Agape (18-257)

Agape found her way into our shelter after her owner passed away. Agape is 12 years old and front declawed. She’s been hanging out in her foster home since the beginning of July and her foster momma still hasn’t been able to touch her but they’re making great progress together! Agape no longer hides when she eats. Sometimes if we’re really still when we hold out her food dish, she will snack from the dish in our hands. But don’t touch! We are working every day to help this sweet girl regain her confidence and hopefully one day she’ll be available for adoption, but for now, she’s hanging out with her foster family!


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.
