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 10 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.


(16-030) This is Grace. We wish this beautiful girl came to us on better terms, but we were contacted after a concerned citizen felt she wasn’t getting proper care by a woman who was feeding her outside. It turns out she needed all her teeth removed and most of her jaw just crumbled away during her dental work, so she has permanent jaw disfigurement. The infection in her teeth didn’t stop there, but went to her skin and ears causing her to be in a lot of pain. She had tons of hair loss, discoloration to her skin, and open wounds.

Thankfully now that she is recovering from her dental and had her multiple rechecks she is much happier and just wants love now. Her fur is coming in so much softer and her appetite is coming back with a vengeance! She still has a hard time keeping weight on even though she mostly sleeps and sunbathes her day away. The vet still thinks she is deaf even though we were hoping to save some of her hearing by beating the infections. Because of her hearing issues, she does not do well with other kitties. We have no way of knowing how old Grace is, but have come to terms that old lady Grace will live her life in a foster home, yelling at the other foster kitties till they let her go back to her nap.

Grace’s additional shelter expenses include an all wet diet, her favorite Fancy Feast Broths, & vet appointments. Please help us keep Grace happy!


(16-234) Wobbles is our cute kitten friend. She was born in our shelter. She is currently in foster care for cerebellar hypoplasia (hence the name!). We are currently working on re-littertraining her. She is good with other cats but doesn’t like to be picked up because it throws off her balance. She does like to cuddle and snuggle. She LOVES to chase the laser pointer. Wobbles would appreciate if you would sponsor her or donate in her name!

Wobbles additional shelter expenses include annual vet visits, potty mats and extra food to keep up with her high metabolism.


(15-103) Mama Cat is a snuggly 8-10 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.


Peanut (18-189)

Peanut is a feisty little thing girl and is scheduled for a dental mid July. She loves kisses on the head, except she tries to nibble your face afterwards. Don’t worry though!  Her love bites don’t hurt since she has next to no teeth. We were contacted by a woman who  saw Peanut every day for weeks on her way to and home from work. When our volunteers went looking for her, we pulled over, called out and she came running. Vet says she’s a more mature lady at maybe 10 years old.

Esther (18-182) is a 10 year old girl down on her luck. Sadly her owner died and she is very upset about it. She does not like change and will need love and understanding once moved into a home. It could take her months to adjust. She’s a big girl at about 20 pounds and Front declawed. Will you open up your heart and home for this precious girl?

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.
