We need your help for an upcoming fundraiser. Paws will be having a yard sale the weekend of May 17 and 18. We will be looking for donations of items for the yard sale and, of course, customers to buy these items.

More information regarding donation drop offs, etc. will soon be posted so please keep an eye on our website and FaceBook page for updates!!!!


We have many young kittens in foster care and we are starting our kitten waiting list. To be on this list you must come in to the Shelter and fill out an application for pre-approval.

Here are a few of the cuties we are currently fostering:

Noodle and Breeze Fundraising

In the Spring of 2013 Paws of Plainville volunteers rescued 30 kitties — mostly young kittens — from a junkyard colony. The conditions there were bleak and all of the cats suffered from a variety of afflictions including, but not limited to, ringworm, malnourishment, Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) and both internal and external parasites. It took a lot of time, patience and money to treat these kitties and a few of them had to be hospitalized for treatment.

***UPDATE***: We greatly appreciate those who have donated so far. We have collected approximately $1,000 but we still need more donations to fund the surgeries so please ask your coworkers, friends, neighbors and family to help if they can.

Luckily, most of these kitties have been adopted into new forever homes but we have 2 wonderful brothers here that need your help. Noodle and Breeze both have a condition called “luxating patella” where their kneecaps are not properly aligned. This condition is rare in cats and, unfortunately, they have it in both rear legs. The severity of their condition is enough that surgery has been recommended to repair both legs to improve the quality of their lives and to increase their adoptability.

This is where we need your help. The cost of the needed operations exceed our shelter's limited funding so we need donations in order to get these kitties the treatment that they deserve. They have come so far from the lethargic, ringworm ridden kittens that arrived at our shelter and they really need your support. Please make a donation towards the surgery of Noodle and Breeze and know that your money is truly going to a great cause…

Donations mailed directly to Paws of Plainville, Inc., P.O. Box 2236, Plainville MA 02762 will ensure that 100% of each donation goes to help Breeze and Noodle. To allow on-line donations, we have created a Go Fund Me account into which donations may be made. However, there are administrative fees associated with that account so we encourage sending checks directly to Paws of Plainville.

If you know anyone who is able to donate please ask them to do so. You can also help by posting this FLYER in public places. Breeze and Noodle will appreciate every contribution.

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.

The love bundles pictured below are looking to join your family.

If you are interested in meeting any of the cats waiting for a home, please call (508) 695-4707
(leave a message if need be!).

Up-Coming Fundraisers


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:

Paws of Plainville, Inc.
P.O. Box 2236

All donors will be acknowledged.

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.
