Washer & Dryer Donation

A short while ago, the washer and dryer at Paws of Plainville, Inc. started to protest from all of the towels and bedding they so diligently laundered for the kitties in need. The washer drum would bang and the dryer would squeak. All of us volunteers were in a quandary: what would we do?! The flea ridden kittens needed warm clean towels after their baths. The emaciated cats needed thick clean beds in which to warm up . The sick and frightened felines needed clean linens to cover their cages and give them comfort and safety.

Belcher’s Appliance Center came to the rescue! They wasted no time donating a GE Washer and a Speed Queen commercial dryer! Tim Petit of Tri-State Appliance Installation was just a quick to deliver the new appliances and to install them! Now our kitties are purring away in laundry bliss: clean and warm linens abound. Tyler, one of our older kitties in need of a home and shown in this picture, certainly loves the new machines and perching on top of them.

We are so grateful to Belcher’s Appliance Center located at 120 Fountain Street in Framingham, MA – tel: 508-626-2321 and Tim Petit, owner of Tri-State Appliance Installation, 1050 Great Road, Albion, RI – tel: 401-475-5241. We hope that if anyone has a chance to thank them in person, please do!

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson of detective fame, had fantastic mystery solving abilities and were a dynamic duo. Holmes was a master of disguises and Watson was his astute friend. Watson is a sweet grey and white gentleman whose purrs will tell you the tale of being your friend for life. There is no mystery here, Watson is a dynamic feline.

Watson is 2-1/2 years old. He has been neutered, combo tested negative and is current on all standard vaccinations.

If you would like to meet Watson or other cats or kittens in our care waiting for a home, please call (508) 695-4707 (leave a message if need be!).

Up-Coming Fundraisers


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:

Adopting From Us
  • Our adoption fee for a kitten under 6 months of age is $140 for the first one and $120 for the second one. For cats 6 months and over is $140 for the first cat and $125 for the second one (effective 1 May 2015).
  • You must provide proof that you have spayed or neutered the adopted animal pursuant to the terms of the adoption contract (for animals that are not already spayed or neutered). If the shelter is unable to spay or neuter the animal prior to adoption (in cases of kittens who are too young at the time of adoption), the shelter charges a State-mandated $40 spay/neuter deposit be paid at the time of adoption, which is refundable upon receipt upon proof of the spay/neuter. The shelter can provide referrals for low cost spay/neuter clinics. Ask your adoption counselor for more information.
  • You must be 18 years or older.
  • If you rent where you are living, you must have a copy of your lease or written permission from your landlord stating that you have permission to have a cat living on the premises. If you live with your parents or other relatives that are the property owner then you need written permission from them or they need to sign the adoption contract. Having this paperwork with you while filling out the adoption application can greatly reduce the processing time.
  • You must complete both sides of the adoption form and answer all questions.  Our adoption counselors will evaluate the information on the form and will speak with you about your responses.  Please be patient this process may take several days.
  • All adoptions must be approved by at least two of our adoption counselors.
  • Adoptions are done on Saturday mornings and all required adoption fees must be paid in full at the time of adoption.
  • We will provide all medical information that is known about the animal. You become responsible for any veterinarian bills once the animal has been adopted.
  • If for any reason, you cannot keep the adopted animal, you must return the animal to the Paws of Plainville Animal Shelter.
Adoption Comments
  • Applicants are not able to take the animals home immediately.
  • Adoptions counselors need to evaluate the application and make sure it is a good fit with the needs and temperament of the animal in question.
  • It typically takes several days to process an adoption application. 
  • Please be patient; we want the best for both the humans and the animal.
