community to help more cats
live full and cherished lives
Every day, rescuers across the US get emails like the one below, desperate pleas to save animals in shelters for whom the clock is ticking. This is Nehemiah's Story.

'This darling
and extra friendly kitty needs rescue now.. only 9 weeks old.. Ready to go  home for the holidays.. He is so playful.. and will put his paws through the cage at you wanting to get your attention.. The shelter is full and we have been put on alert that his time is up any day, sooner rather than later... Please let this little guy have a full life.. he is too young to die..'

His mother already euthanized at the shelter, Nehemiah along with siblings Noelle and Nathaniel became favorites of the staff who begged for more time.  These kittens were rescued from the shelter the day before they were to be killed and given a chance at life in a loving home.  Many more die for the crime of being unwanted.  PLEASE - spay/neuter your animals and always make adoption your option.

This is Nehemiah. The rest of his litter and his mom, suffering from upper respiratory infections, had already been euthanized at the shelter. A plea was sent out to rescue organizations to save him since he was starting to show symptoms of this very common and treatable condition but one often beyond the capacity of public shelters to manage, and he would be next. "He is too young to die", the plea started. Yet that is the fate of too many kittens, born to die. Female cats have litter after litter, their bodies exhausted and nutritionally depleted, often giving birth to sick kittens, and sometimes succumbing themselves to illness, or being euthanized in shelters. This cycle must stop. Please be part of the solution!

This fund was established in October 2010 to support CatPAWS' mission of providing Trap/Neuter/Release (TNR) for feral cat management and to reduce overall cat overpopulation.
