Donate nowCats available for Adoption

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

Arabella is still looking for her forever home. She is very sweet and loves to cuddle. But will need time to settle until she comes out of her shell. She was originally a house cat for the first 2 years of her life and then sent to a barn. She came to us with a urinary tract infection and is on medication and special food to clear it up. Arabella was adopted and unfortunately quickly returned through no fault of her own. She had been moved so many times she was very stressed out. She has now had to go on another round of antibiotics for her infection. We have placed her in a wonderful foster home in Stratford where she stay until her infection is cleared up. She is a little over 2 years old, spayed and is up to date on all her vaccines. She is currently on a special diet and it is recommended she stay on it.
We are taking applications on her but she must stay in her foster home until her infection is completely gone.
Anyone that is interested in Arabella must come and spend time with her to ensure its the perfect fit. And should come even a couple times. This time there is no coming back. We have to make sure she is going to her forever home. Moving her around again will stress her out. Requires a quiet home with no small children or other animals.

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.
