Sewall Foundation in support of our Valley Cat Haven expansion. We have been planning our expansion for the past year and began construction in August, 2017. The work will be ongoing through the Spring of 2018. We are very grateful for the Foundation’s support of our efforts to improve the quality of our cat rescue operation.
The Elmina B. Sewall Foundation is located in Freeport, Maine.  Mrs. Sewall worked to improve the well-being of people, animals and the environment. The Elmina B. Sewall Foundation was established to continue her work.          

Successful Valentine Fundraiser

Tractor Supply Company of Madawaska Makes a Cat Food Donation to PAWS

PAWS recently participated in a Valentine fundraiser by making Valentine cards with pictures of our cute kittens.  ​​We were onsite at Tractor Supply with kittens Eve and Itsy on February 10 and 11 selling cards. Other venues that participated were Sears, Fort Kent Animal Hospital, Natalie's Creations and Twin Rivers. Thanks for your support.


PAWS sponsored a Spay/Neuter Clinic on February 27, 2018 which was held at Fort Kent Animal Hospital. This was the first clinic this year.  This clinic helped pet owners who needed financial assistance to get  their cats altered. We spayed or neutered a total of 14 cats, 5 females and 9 males.  These clinics are a valuable community service.  We want to thank Dr. Yule and her staff for making this possible and for sponsoring this clinic and we want to thank Susan Hall and Sandi Coburn for sponsoring theWednesday spay/neuter slots.
