Helping Paws Animal Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 non-profit, no kill shelter, housing almost 200 healthy cats and kittens as well as special needs, FIV and FELV cats. “Our cats and kittens are housed in rooms not cages” We have volunteers who come in and care for our cats; we have cat toys, TVs with cat videos to keep our cats active. The main goal of the shelter is to not only find them homes, but to provide a wonderful home for the cats while they are in our care.” said Nuszewsju.
