URGENT NEED!!!

URGENT!: We have so many little mouths to feed!!!! We are asking all of our friends, who would like to help our kitties, to please donate canned kitten food. We are running out daily.

Our babies are fed FANCY FEAST KITTEN. It comes in only two flavors, turkey and fish.

Please help us fill the bellies of our growing babies.



Our kitten season has gone straight through the summer with no end in sight! We have many bundles of joy available with more arriving soon.



THANK YOU

Our shelter friend Zoey recently celebrated her birthday. Her gift request? She asked that all her friends and family donate items or funds to help all the kitties at Paws of Plainville, Inc. What a great gesture! Zoey came to the shelter to deliver all of the presents to the cats. She brought so many toys, food and treats…it was amazing!! The kitties truly thank you Zoey.

We hope you had a wonderful time at the shelter. Please come back and visit anytime. All of us at the shelter, including the kitties, congratulate you on your birthday!!!

Mitchell Pearson and Eric Howells donated their time, talent and a raffle basket to help the Paws kitties. The boys spent the day with us at Plainville's Annual Fall Festival. They performed their well tuned juggling act and donated the money they collected to Paws of Plainville. They also set up a table with a basket to raffle....again, donating the proceeds to help homeless kitties in need.

We all, humans and felines, thank you both so very much!


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.

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:

MAIL YOUR DONATIONS TO:
Paws of Plainville, Inc.

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 $125 for the first cat and $100 for the second one.
  • 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.
