A Plea for Donations

Dear Friends of Paws & Claws,

We need help with our spay/neuter of this year's kittens!  We have been growing so fast, we unfortunately took more kittens into the program than we have been able to adopt, and they all need to be spayed and neutered now!  We need $4,000.00 to pay for these spay/neuters!  If you can help us at all - any amount donated will help.  All donations are tax deductible - we are a registered charily and 90% of all donations go directly to the cats and kittens.

It has been all we can do to pay our vet bills for kittens who have gotten sick, and buy food and litter for the 90 cats and kittens in our program. Safeguards will be put into effect so this does not happen again, but it is so hard to say no to saving these poor homeless kittens!

If you can help spay and neuter our kittens, click on the Donate button on the right, or send a check to:

  Paws & Claws Feline Rescue
  P. O. Box 5221
  Statesville, NC 28687

We have adopted 140 cats and kittens so far this year and hope to adopt 200 by the end of the year!  Please help us spay and neuter our kittens!

Adam and Stevie, and an important article for your pet’s health

Jane writes:

The boys are doing wonderfully well, little Stevie is so robust and healthy now that he can outplay Adam. They are such happy, loving, little fellas. They are my little muses and my story titled Doption written from Stevie's point of view is going to be in an anthology of pet adoption stories. They author Fiona Ingram told me it will be an E Book but also a print book. There will be pictures of the boys too.

The best news of all, my husband has stopped smoking cigarettes and has switched to E-cigs which have no second hand smoke. I'd like to credit the boys for that but it's because of our little grandson Calvin who was born in May, my daughter told her dad that he is not allowed to smoke around the grandchildren. I cannot tell you how nice it is to not have a house that smells like an ash tray. When you look at the picture of the boys you'll notice that Stevie is almost as big as Adam now. He really picked up in height and length. Adam is on the outside, he always cradles his brother as though he still feels the need to be protective. I love them both so much.

Thanks, Nancy!

We got a lovely email from Nancy, who said:

“Hats off to you, Jean, and to all your other volunteers and helpers.  Congratulations on six years!  You've got a big job, what with all the unspayed female cats in Iredell County.  I know no one can possibly help them all -- but you're doing such a GREAT job of helping as many as you can!”

Deepest thanks,
