 Welcome to Precious Paws, Inc.

Our Mission:

PRECIOUS PAWS, INC. is a no-kill, 501(C)(3) non-profit organization solely staffed by volunteers who are dedicated to the rescue of stray cats and kittens in Orange County, NY.

All of our cats are altered, tested for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas/mites. All of our kittens have had at least one distemper vaccine, have been tested for FIV/FeLV, and have had at least one worming treatment. All of our kittens will be altered by five months. We will follow up with any kitten adopted prior to altering as agreed upon at the time of adoption. We also follow up with every cat adopted from our organization by phone call or home visit. We also reserve the right to take back any cat if we find that they are being abused, neglected or if the adopter made false statements on their application.

Our felines are fully attended to medically, socialized in one of our foster homes and placed for adoption. We do however also have special needs cats, ie animals that are difficult to socialize or are handicapped. If you are interested in saving a little life, please call. We try very hard to match the right feline with the right person. We are also strong advocates of T/N/R(Trap/Neuter/Return) methods for managing feral cat colonies. If you would like more info on T/N/R please visit Alley Cat Allies website or e-mail us. We are also in need of monetary donations for our Spay/Neuter Fund and for medical expenses.

If you are interested in adopting a cat or kitten, visit us at the Newburgh PetSmart, e-mail us at preciouspawscatrsq@yahoo.com or check our ADOPTIONS page.

We thank all of you who help us save so many lives... We can't do it without you!!!

Calling All Volunteers!


After many attempts these past few weeks, Joy was rescued from a feral colony in the City of Newburgh last night. The caregiver of the colony noticed there was something wrong with Joy's eye, but she would usually come around at night and was very skittish. We are not sure what could have happened to her eye, but it has to be removed at this point. 

Unfortunately, as an emergency patient we have to go where they can accommodate emergencies. Oradell Animal Hospital is a place we trust! We were quoted a minimum of $3,000 to a high of possibly $4,500 . If anyone would be able to chip in, any amount is greatly appreciated. CLICK HERE RO HELP US HELP JOY! Thank you!
