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.
Sarabi (16-037) has been with us since January 2016. Although he is beautiful and could get adopted on looks alone he is a trouble maker! Unfortunately he came from a terrible hoarders situation that left him with trust issues, a horrible skin & bowel condition. After months of treatment and vet appointments we were able to heal his skin and grow his beautiful coat back. His bowels are still an ongoing issue that requires medications twice daily and frequent checkups. We are still continuing to try to potty train him.
As frustrating as daily potty problems are, his fosters love this cranky man and his need to join them in the shower every day.
His added expenses for the shelter are: monthly medications, special wet diet, and lots of carpet cleaner. Please help us support Sarabi’s daily needs!
(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.
Grace’s additional shelter expenses include an all wet diet, her favorite Fancy Feast Broths, & vet appointments. Please help us keep Grace happy!
(16-247) Oh little Trixie. Trixie came to Heavely Paws on July 14th of this year. She was found in Dillsburg by a very nice couple. They found her laying out in their mulch all but dead. When they first brought her in she didn’t even want to eat. She was severely matted from head to toe and very thin. Trixie has broken teeth and a rotten mouth. The vet is not sure how old she is because of the terrible shape she’s in. While we don’t know her age we do know she loves to snuggle! Who wouldn’t want to snuggle her. We are attempting to get Trixie stable enough to spay her and do dental work on her.
When she first came in her blood work was showing a severe infection but has gotten better. One x-ray shows something in her chest but the doctor is not able to tell if it is cancer or a pocket of infection.
Trixie is currently seeing a specialist for an ultrasound and biopsy. She is due to get her bone marrow biopsied soon. In addition to these costly appointments, Trixie will still need her dental work & spay done. If you can help with these costs, please sign up to sponsor Trixie
(16-299) Meet Tiny! She is about 6 months old. She is very sweet and has the cutest squeak of a meow! She’s very curious and likes to talk so she gets attention! She is good with cats, but is a little leery of young children and quick movements. She would do best with a young cat friend as she misses her brother. Tiny is in a foster home on quarantine after her brother died unexpectedly. Hopefully Tiny will be adoptable again soon. Until then, you can sponsor her or apply online to meet her
(16-153) Oh hi there! My name is Buttons. I’m a sweet & social girl that LOVES attention!! I’m FIV+, but that only means I’m extra special! Us cats with FIV can still live long, happy lives; even with other NON-FIV cats 🙂 Buttons would love to get a furever home of her own! She’s now hanging out at a foster home, so fill out an adoption application online!
(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.
(17-058) Susie is an older gal around 5 years old. She came into the shelter with very bad periodontal disease. She has since had her teeth removed and has made great improvements. Susie is now on a total wet food diet. Currently she is only eating Friskies Chicken wet food. She is looking for a retirement home with a loving & caring family. Susie gets along with kids, dogs, & other cats. She LOVES kittens and was a terrific mother before coming into HP. She is currently seeing a vet ever 2 months for routine check ups.
Susie’s additional shelter expenses include routine vet visits and wet food.
(17-057) Minnie is a 2 year old gal with Stomatitis and a food allergy. Due to her food allergy she is on a special diet and medicine twice a week. Minnie has been in foster care since February of 2017 and has been getting regular vet visits and careful monitoring. She has proven to be good with kids, dogs & other cats. She was found in York city. Minnie has silky smooth fur & loves to get lots of attention.
