Help Wee Paws

I think this is a fantastic cause, so I wanted to pass it along to everyone. :)

An auction is currently being held to benefit Wee Paws, a no-kill, cage-free, animal sanctuary that specializes in caring for cats who are considered "unadoptable," those who are elderly, have behavioral problems, are chronically ill, or who are FIV positive. Wee Paws has been rescuing cats since 2004 and currently houses 24 resident cats in a home-like environment.

Unfortunately, the animals at Wee Paws are currently in trouble. The former owner of the home being used as a sanctuary lost the home to foreclosure. While Freddie Mac had agreed to let Wee Paws continue to operate out of the home while paying a monthly rental fee, they have recently recanted the offer, telling the rescue that they must either purchase the home or be evicted from the property.

All of the money raised in this auction will go directly to helping support the sanctuary and the kitties' needs. There are no paid staff members who care for the cats - just kind-hearted cat lovers.

You can bid on 20 different items in the auction through Sunday May 22 at 11:59 Eastern time. Some of the things in the auction include: sports trading cards, PlayStation 3 games, drinking fountains for your pets, Cat-opoly board game, cat grass, the book, "Weep Not for Me, In Memory of A Beloved Cat," the book, "Natural Cat Care," TY beanie babies, pashmina scarves/wraps, and a wireless Bluetooth mini headset. You can check out and bid on all the items in the auction by visiting this link.

You can also learn more about Wee Paws by visiting the rescue's website.

Happy bidding!

  1. Hi, Sierra - I hope enough is raised for Wee Paws. I have two unadoptable cats I foster now. I am always so glad to learn of places like Wee Paws.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog, Homeless Cat Care.

    Keep up the good work!
