Who We Are

Cause for Paws is a 501(c)3 non-profit, no-kill shelter for cats and kittens. In addition to matching 300-500 cats and kittens with prospective families each year, Cause for Paws is also responsible for spreading the word about the care and responsibility that must be given to our feline friends. Spaying and neutering are so important in our cause to help eliminate the thousands of unwanted cats and kittens in our area towns. Our spay-neuter tracking program for our kitties is 99% effective. Other issues, such as inhumane declawing, animal cruelty, lack of care, and roadside abandonment of unwanted pets are other areas we continue to address. We are just one small organization, can you imagine the numbers of cats out there that are not being helped.

The organization was founded 19 years ago by Mary Lou Kobak and Priscilla Thompson, the first of its kind to aid abandoned animals in the area. Priscilla Thompson was killed in a tragic accident several years ago. Mary Lou continues to be the driving force behind the organization, carrying out their dream. She has seemingly endless energy and love for the cats and kittens in our area who need her aid. The organization is made up of a wonderful group of extremely dedicated volunteers.
