Hearts4Paws Animal Rescue is excited to be starting a new podcast series, which will include some of our experiences rescuing 55 cats since our inception. We will also touch on compassion fatigue and coping mechanisms for people who are in rescue or work with animals. Most importantly we want to create awareness and address some concerns about all the current issues relating to animal welfare in our community. We are working on our very first “Whistleblower” Series. Stay tuned for more information.

Cats up for adoption

We are now accepting applications for Link.

This beautiful boy is approximately 1 year old. His start in life was as an elusive stray on the streets searching for food and warmth. He was secured at the end of March and since then has been working at trusting humans. Link is a very playful kitty, he loves to chirp and just loves all cats and is curious and fine with cat friendly dogs. He would do best in a quieter home with another friendly young cat and a patient experienced pet owner who can give him time to trust. Once he trusts he just loves to interact and play, loves good solid neck rubs and very well might become a lap cat in time. He is still learning what it means to be in a home with sounds but that doesn’t stop him as his curiosity gets the best of him. If you think you could give Link a forever home for him to flourish in and would like to meet him please contact Hearts4paws Rescue. Link is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and FIV/FeVL negative.

Why your donations are important to us:

Most of the cats that come into our care are Senior cats coming from homes where their owners have either passed away or are going into a long term care facility and cannot take their beloved cats. Many do not have up to date vaccines and some have had no vet care at all for a quite sometime.

Through our Angel Paws Fund we are able to provide them with vet care, get them up to date on all their vaccines to get these fur babies into their forever homes. We rely on donations from fellow animal lovers and generous donors in our community for their support so we can continue to help more cats. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support.
