Thank you for your interest in Fostering a Senior cat. The response from our community has been overwhelming and we have been struggling to get back to everyone and screen potential fosters.

So at this time we have made the tough decision to stop any intake of surrenders due to the lack of volunteers. Losing our marketing coordinator so abruptly has hindered our ability to keep up with the time commitment necessary to run the rescue. After the newspaper article we have so many people come forward to offer foster homes, be drivers and offer donations….this has been amazing however we have struggled significantly to try and get back to everyone by email, phone and FB due to the overwhelming response.  Without dedicated volunteers to help share the responsibilities (to mention a few): responding to a high volume of inquires, assistance with fundraising, advertising our cats up for adoption, meet and greets, screening fosters, screening adoptive homes & drivers, coordinating vet visits, this makes things makes things challenging when I am already running several businesses. With the additional challenges and delays that have affected my industry, without other dedicated volunteers its impossible for me to keep up with the time commitment required to run the rescue. We currently have 5 cats left in foster care which we just have enough funds left in our “Hearts4Paw’s Angel Fund” to cover their medical expenses. They will be adopted out as soon as they are ready.

Thanks for supporting our rescue.

Since most of our cats are seniors, some cats we take in may not do well with other pets.
Seniors are often harder to adopt out and can take a little longer to find a forever home.
Alot of the cats we take in have had limited to no medical care and can sometimes need medication or have a condition we are treating.
What Drives Us

Our Mission


Hearts4Paws Animal Rescue works to ensure that no cat becomes homeless as a result of an emergency experienced by its owner. Sudden hospitalization, a move to long-term care, or any other life crisis can mean that a cat may no longer be cared for in the home he / she has known and loved. Sometimes, especially in the case of a senior cat, the cat might be at risk of euthanization because it can be difficult to find a new forever home. Hearts4Paws intervenes in such cases, fostering and rehoming cats in emergency surrender situations.
