In Memoriam - Winnie Miller

A memorial donation has been made from family and friends of Winnie Miller, 94, who passed over the Rainbow Bridge to be with her loving dog, Stormy, and all the homeless cats and kittens we couldn’t save.  Winnie was a best friend and loyal volunteer for Paws & Claws Feline Rescue for fourteen years and will be missed.  Winnie is from Cornelius, NC and Mentor, OH

Sweet Sampson

Shannon writes:

Hi!  In November 2017 we adopted Sampson from the Statesville Pet Smart during one of your adoption fairs. 
He is the sweetest & most gentle cat.  He has been a blessing to our family.
I am sending a photo of Sampson doing what he does every night. ...sleeping on my legs!
Thanks for taking such good care of him before he became a member of our family! 

Good News!

Good News!  We have reopened our Discount Pet Supply Store just in time for our 11th Anniversary! 

Statesville, NC 28625


Cat supplies including litter, toys, bowls
Dog supplies including food, collars, harnesses, & leashes
Fish, Small Animal, and Bird Supplies

Crates and carriers, etc.

Thank you for your continued support of Paws & Claws Feline Rescue and we hope you will spread the word about our new store location.  This is a very active and well attended indoor/outdoor flea market (we feel the best in the area) and well worth a visit on a Saturday or Sunday.  We hope to be able to support our seventy stray and feral cats with the help of your donations. As you know, we manage two feral colonies and a refuge and spend over $400.oo a month just to feed them, plus vetting and TNR.

 We still need volunteers to feed and trap in the Statesville area - if you're interested in helping these homeless cats please contact us at

Please send tax deductible donations via Paypal on our website or send to:  Paws & Claws Feline Rescue, PO Box 5221, Statesville, NC 28687.

Proceeds go to feed and vet stray & feral cats!

       We are now dedicated to managing two feral colonies in Statesville, and being a life-long refuge for the remaining cats still in our program.

      Paws & Claws is now feeding and vetting about 70 cats, which is very expensive.  We moved back to Broad Street for a Closeout Sale!  Everything needs to be sold quickly as we have only a short time to stay here.

     If you live in Statesville, we are looking for volunteers to help with trapping and to feed one day a week at one of our feral colonies.  There are tens of thousands of feral and homeless cats and kittens in Iredell County alone who need our help!  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.     
     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 food and vetting - none of which comes for free.  Every penny donated goes to help the cats.    
     Please send tax deductible donations via Paypal on our website or send to:  Paws & Claws Feline Rescue, PO Box 5221, Statesville, NC 28687.  

The cats and kittens thank you….

Please help Ellie!

Ellie is a female ragdoll mix, 2-1/2 yr. old wonderful gorgeous white cat who needs a new home.  Her owner is sick with an autoimmune disease and the doctor said she has to give up her cat and two dogs!  She is heartsick – she loves Ellie so much.  She was adopted from us and is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines.

Please adopt this beautiful kitty – or foster until adopted if you can’t adopt her…….  Contact Jean at Paws & Claws Feline Rescue 704-838-1571 or e-mail

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!!
