Englewood, Florida’s “World’s Greatest Cathouse,“ Puffy Paws Kitty Haven is a 501(c) (3) non-profit, no-kill cat hospice specializing in providing quality and loving care to special needs cats. Owned by Rick & Chrissy & Da Kitties http://www.puffypawskittyhaven.com/index.html
“We care for kitties with feline leukemia, FIV, blind kitties, feral cats, epileptic kitties, kitties with only one eye, senior kitties, kitties that do not use their litter box, kitties with thyroid conditions and more - basically unwanted and unadoptable kitties that would be euthanized elsewhere.”
Puffy Paws Kitty Haven's mission is to provide hospice care for special needs cats. Puffy Paws Kitty Haven will provide quality healthcare, food, water, shelter and most of all, love to all the cats in its care until they cross the Rainbow Bridge. They serves a unique need as a hospice for special needs kitties, but with declining donations and increasing costs, the mighty Cathouse is in danger of eventually closing one day without an guarantee steady stream of working capital.

At Puffy Paws Kitty Haven they do not put down any animals for behavior problems, space or adopt-ability issues. Yet Puffy Paws Kitty Haven never has and never will let any kitty suffer with any medical condition that only allows pain & suffering and no chance of survival.
No Kill sheltering models, based on innovative, non-lethal programs and services, have already saved the lives of tens of thousands of animals.
But instead of embracing No Kill, many shelters—and their national agency allies—cling to their failed models of the past, models that result in the killing of millions of dogs and cats in U.S. shelters every year.
Puffy Paws Kitty Haven was proud to announce that it has started up a Kitty Adoption Program in the Summer of 2007, and adopted out well over 225 kitties. Currently they have many kitties available for adoption. You may adopt their kitties at PetSmart in Port Charlotte.
Since space is limited and they are expanding their adoption program by seeking foster families. These foster families would provide a temporary home for unwanted kitties that come into Puffy Paws care until forever homes can be found.
Puffy Paws Kitty Haven takes care of the largest amount of special need kitties in the area.
They specialize in taking care of special needs kitties that would have been euthanized elsewhere simply because someone would have deemed them to be unadoptable.
They are set up to handle the different medical concerns the kitties have by separating them into their very own living quarters.
They have the 2000 sq foot " Haven Home " which houses healthy adoptable kitties, and their permanent residence who have physical, emotional and behavioral problems.
Their workshop is 800 sq foot which was nicknamed the " Kitty Angel Club ".
Soon the members of the " Kitty Angel Club ", will be enjoying an out-door, free-standing, backyard fence system thanks to the folks from Purr...fect fence. This portion of the " Haven Home" will be called the Kitty Angel Park .
Each and every day they need your help. If you would like to make a monetary donation please click one of the donate buttons on their web site or click the ChipIn located there.
