Acceptance Policy Revised May 2015
Due to the spring kitten season (aka the kitten tsunami!) and monetary constraints, we are unable to accept any new cats/kittens at this time. Please contact one or more of the other DFW-area groups listed here at Petfinder by clicking on the "Shelter and Rescue Groups" link at the top of Petfinder's home page (you can search by zip code).
If you are able to keep your cat or kitten while we help you look for a new owner, e-mail us at hairball AT texaspawprints DOT org.
Who We Are
We are a small, informal 501(3)(c) non-profit rescue group. We specialize in rescuing cats and kittens deemed unacceptable by animal control facilities and other groups.
These animals may simply be the wrong color - for example, black cats often take longer to rehome - or they may have special needs. They may be FIV positive, have a chronic medical condition or physical scars acquired before rescue, or recovering from an abusive past.
We welcome new volunteers in any capacity, and promise to be really nice to you and to buy you a Starbucks as often as possible.
Adopting a Lifetime Friend
Our adoption fee is $95. Before being offered for adoption, each cat or kitten will receive at least one set of vaccinations, a blood test for FIV and Feline Leukemia, plus treatment for fleas and worms if needed. Spay and neuter surgeries are included in the adoption fee. We do not adopt pets out unless they have been spayed or neutered.
NEW! We've expanded to Rockwall! Visit the Rockwall Petsmart and check out the adoption center, where we keep up to six cats and/or kittens for you to meet. We also do "live" adoption events on the first and third Saturday of each month at the Rockwall Petsmart, from 12 to 5 pm. . We're also at the Petsmart at 5500 Greenville Avenue every Sunday from 2 to 5 pm.
If you're considering adopting a cat or kitten you've seen in our Petfinder listings, let us know and we'll make sure to bring them to Petsmart for a personal introduction.
Our e-mail at hairball AT texaspawprints DOT org is checked daily.
