PurrFect Paws Rescue is a registered, non-profit corporation in the State of Pennsylvania and operates as a 501(c) 3 federally tax-exempt Public Charity. Our small group of experienced animal rescue workers recognized the need to address the friendly stray (non-feral) population living on the streets. We intake these unfortunate animals, provide them with complete veterinary care and place them in our foster care program. We work strictly out of foster care homes where our rescued animals are raised and cared for as our own. Unlike large shelters, our animals are in a cageless environment. This affords us great insight into their temperaments, personalities and interactions with other animals.
Our volunteers have many years of experience in handling and caring for animals and are overseen and assisted by a team of licensed veterinarians. We are available to educate pet owners through difficult situations and it is our feeling that through education we help promote responsible pet ownership practices.
Foster Care homes are the backbone of our rescue and we are both fortunate and blessed to have such a dedicated group who are thoroughly committed to health and welfare of each animal we care for. Recognizing the standard of quality care for maintaining a healthy environment for our foster cats and kittens, we limit our intake. We do NOT intake pets surrendered by pet owners at this time. We hope there will come a time when this will change but we will make every effort possible to assist pet owners to find other no-kill shelters and rescues.
Please join us in our mission in making a difference in the life of a homeless animal by making a monetary donation or offering a gift of food, litter or a toy to one of our orphaned animals. Your donations are tax deductible to the extent the law allows.
We do not have a "Physical" shelter for you to visit but you can find our volunteers and kitties every Saturday at our only adoption partner, the PETCO in Wynnewood, PA, from 12pm-3:30pm.
Oscar is one handsome devil! Not only is he a looker, he is super sweet as well. Oscar loves attention, laps, and the laser light. We are not sure what type of cat he is, but he appears to be a Persian cat or possibly a Maine Coon. Everyone that meets him says he looks like a different breed...Persian, Maine Coon, Himalyan, Ragdoll!! Oh my!! While we don't know if he a fancy cat or just a regular long haired kitty, we do know he is 100% awesome! He has a gorgeous, lush grey and white coat and the cutest fuzzy ears. He is outgoing and friendly and adores being doted upon.
Oscar came to Purrfect Paws in very rough shape. He was found as a stray and would probably not have survived another night on the street. He was extremely sick and underweight and it took months for him to recover. Oscar is finally all healed and ready to find his forever home.
He is approximately 4 - 6 years old, neutered and UTD on vaccines. While Oscar adores people, he is not fond of other adult cats which is most likely due to his tough time on the streets. However, Oscar does love kittens! He has been fostered with a few different litters of kittens and has been a great surrogate dad to them. If you are interested in adopting two cats, we think Oscar would adjust just fine if he was adopted with a kitten. Hopefully they would stay best buds forever! He has never been formally introduced to dogs but we see no reason why he wouldn't adjust to living with a dog.
