Welcome to Calvin's Paws!

Welcome to Calvin's Paws, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue. We are dedicated to rescuing and finding homes for stray and abandoned animals, providing education on responsible pet ownership, FIV and feline leukemia, the importance of trap-neuter-release and partnering with other rescue groups to help change the world for the animals to make their existence pain-free and full of love.

Calvin's Paws is dedicated to giving hope to animals that they too will find this great love with you. You can see us out at local events with our gorgeous animals. Please stop in and meet these wonderful creatures.

We have animals that are ready to fill your homes and hearts with love. They will fill your days with companionship and joy beyond what you can imagine. We also have some special cats - those that are FIV or feline leukemia positive and other animals with special needs for care or attention that need a person with an especially big heart as these animals have endless depths of love to give to the special person that falls in love with them.

We are comprised of a network of foster homes and other volunteers that rescue and care for the animals until they are adopted. We work in conjunction with other rescue groups, veterinarians and the community to educate regarding responsible pet ownership. Join us, Calvin's Paws, in our mission to make the world a better place for the animals.

During these difficult economic times our furry friends are first to feel its effects. Often they are dumped in the shelters at alarming rates or abandoned in the streets. We ask that you consider donating to Calvin's Paws to help all of our furry friends and help us as we continue to take in the animals that people so casually and cruelly toss aside.

Keep track of everything that is happening at Calvin's Paws. Just join our email list and get our newsletter. It tells about events, adoptions, our special animals and how you can help. Sign up Here. Or check out our newsletter Here.

While you are here, please take a moment to see how a few minutes out of your day can help save a life.

See the many ways you can help in our How to Help and Donations area. Go to the adoptions area and find a kitty to sponsor, or better yet fill out an application to adopt a kitty!

The kitties would like you to take a moment to admire how sweet and beautiful they are.

Check out their self-written bios.

And if you don't mind shedding a tear, see some happy ending photos. And the animals want to remind you how important it is to spay and neuter - check out the animal's own words on this music video: Video

YOU can make each bio end with a happy ending.

Thank you for making us part of your day!
