Thank you, Shepherd Elementary School and Cub Scout Pack 174!

Jen Rash presents cat food and treats to Paws & Claws Feline Rescue donated from a pet food drive organized by the students at Shepherd Elementary School.



Stacy Gorman and her son, Aidan Hebbard also donate cat food collected by Cub Scout Pack 174 in Troutman.



These donations are very much appreciated and it’s wonderful to know that children care about the tens of thousands of homeless cats starving every day in Iredell County.   Paws & Claws Feline Rescue feeds approximately eighty homeless and feral cats every day.  They also have discounted pet supplies for sale in the Iredell Choral Society Resale Store at Forest Heights Shopping Center which helps feed homeless cats and kittens.  We need volunteers to help feed one day a week.  Help save a life – donate and volunteer – SPAY & NEUTER!!

Happy Holidays!



Paws & Claws Feline Rescue

  Happy Holidays to all of you, our loyal supporters and volunteers! Although we’ve had to make many changes this year to our organization, our dedication to helping homeless cats and kittens has not wavered.
  After ten plus years we must change our focus. Today, we simply don’t have the foster homes and volunteers to keep as many cats as we have in the past. Instead, we are now dedicated to assisting people with TNR and the vetting of ferals, managing our two feral colonies in Statesville, and being a life-long refuge for the remaining 100 or so cats still in our program.
  We know your time is precious, but if you, or someone you know, who is a fellow cat lover, has any time or resources and could help, please contact us. If you live in Statesville, we are looking for volunteers to feed one day a week at one of our feral colonies.
  We thank you for your many generous donations in the past and hope that you’ll continue to support us in the future. The many cats and kittens in our care depend on us for their care, food, and vetting - none of which comes for free.
  We wish you all the best in 2018 and hope you’ll consider making a tax-deductible donation to us today thereby helping the precious animals in our program.
  Send donations via Paypal on our website pawsandclawsnc.com or send to: Paws & Claws Feline Rescue, PO Box 5221, Statesville, NC 28687.

The cats and kittens thank you….

                                                 Happy Holidays!

Sweet Sebastian, now known as Benji

Jean, 

I wanted to take a moment to let you know that Sebastian is doing great! We actually renamed him Benji. He is playing and purring ALL the time! And he even has his own pillow on our couch that he has claimed as his own. 
When I talk sweet to him, he will start to purr and sometimes he will even "talk" back to me. And he instantly starts purring when I touch him. When I say he purrs all the time, he really purrs all the time! He's so sweet! 
One of the pictures I attached, you can see that he loves to get comfy on my lap! 
Thanks for allowing us the opportunity to adopt this baby doll!
