We need your help for an upcoming fundraiser. Paws will be having a yard sale the weekend of May 17 and 18. We will be looking for donations of items for the yard sale and, of course, customers to buy these items.
We will not be able to accept any kind of computer equipment, large items of furniture (such as sofas, loveseats) or large appliances (such as refrigerators or airconditioners) since we have no easy way of transporting those items or of disposing of them after the yard sale.
More information regarding donation drop offs, etc. will soon be posted so please keep an eye on our website and FaceBook page for updates!!!!
We have many kittens in foster care as well as a few at the shelter. If you are interested in adopting a kitten you must come to the shelter to fill out an application and be put on our kitten waiting list.
Here are a few of the cuties that are currently in our care:
Noodle and Breeze Fundraising
In the Spring of 2013 Paws of Plainville volunteers rescued 30 kitties — mostly young kittens — from a junkyard colony. The conditions there were bleak and all of the cats suffered from a variety of afflictions including, but not limited to, ringworm, malnourishment, Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) and both internal and external parasites. It took a lot of time, patience and money to treat these kitties and a few of them had to be hospitalized for treatment.

***UPDATE***: We greatly appreciate those who have donated so far. We have collected approximately $1,000 but we still need more donations to fund the surgeries so please ask your coworkers, friends, neighbors and family to help if they can.
Luckily, most of these kitties have been adopted into new forever homes but we have 2 wonderful brothers here that need your help. Noodle and Breeze both have a condition called “luxating patella” where their kneecaps are not properly aligned. This condition is rare in cats and, unfortunately, they have it in both rear legs. The severity of their condition is enough that surgery has been recommended to repair both legs to improve the quality of their lives and to increase their adoptability.
This is where we need your help. The cost of the needed operations exceed our shelter's limited funding so we need donations in order to get these kitties the treatment that they deserve. They have come so far from the lethargic, ringworm ridden kittens that arrived at our shelter and they really need your support. Please make a donation towards the surgery of Noodle and Breeze and know that your money is truly going to a great cause…
Donations mailed directly to Paws of Plainville, Inc., P.O. Box 2236, Plainville MA 02762 will ensure that 100% of each donation goes to help Breeze and Noodle. To allow on-line donations, we have created a Go Fund Me account into which donations may be made. However, there are administrative fees associated with that account so we encourage sending checks directly to Paws of Plainville.
If you know anyone who is able to donate please ask them to do so. You can also help by posting this FLYER in public places. Breeze and Noodle will appreciate every contribution.
Donations Are Always Appreciated
Items from our wishlist are always needed and donating is now even easier. We have donation bins for dropping off donated goods at the Plainville Stop & Shop and now at The Village Groomer, 2245 Providence Highway, Walpole (moved from its former location at the Chickadee Seed & Feed on Route 1 in Walpole).
We also have an online wishlist registry at Amazon that enables you to order items online and have them shipped directly to us.
We are currently in particular need of Purina kitten chow and Fancy Feast wet kitten food.

OUR LIST OF ADOPTABLES AS SHOWN ON ADOPT-A-PET.COM:
HELP CATS, PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Rather than having can/bottle drives, Paws of Plainville has set up an account with the Horace Mann Educational Associates (HMEA) Recycling Center at 1 George Street # 4/5, Plainville, MA 02762, (508) 695-1889. You can go in and turn in your cans and bottles at your convenience and ask that the money be put towards the Paws account.
With one act, your recycling will help the environment, you will be helping to provide meaningful work and wages to individuals with disabilities and you will be providing funds that will help us continue to feed and care for cats in need.
We depend on independent contributions from people like you so please consider helping us by making a donation through PayPal. Click the "Donate" button below to proceed.
Any amount helps and the animals are extremely grateful. If you would prefer not to use PayPal:
