Cause for Paws is a small, all-volunteer Minnesota nonprofit 501 (c) (3) group founded in 1998. Our main focus is on finding loving, permanent homes for stray and abandoned cats and kittens.
Cats are fostered in volunteers' homes; there is no shelter facility.
As funds allow, Cause for Paws also provides spay/neuter assistance for owned cats in the community, through its Cause for Paws Spay/Neuter Subsidy Program.
The work of Cause for Paws is entirely funded by donations.
To adopt a Cause for Paws cat, look at the list of available cats and call the Cause for Paws voicemail at (952) 259-1483, or visit with us at an Adoption Day.
Our adoption days are held at one of the following locations:
The location for each day is noted in the list below. Unless otherwise noted, our Adoption Days are Saturdays and all events run from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Adoption fees are $140.

Perhaps you seek a kitty with special needs or special personality who needs a special, accepting family like yours?
What Veterinary Care is Provided by Cause for Paws to Cats Before Adoption?The veterinary care for every Cause for Paws cat or kitten prior to adoption includes:
All additional medical care and treatment, including x-rays, dental cleanings or tooth extractions, major surgery as in leg amputations or eye removal, antibiotics for upper respiratory infections and/or medications for other health issues is also provided by Cause for Paws to all of its cats while in foster care prior to adoption.
What Happens After the Adoption?Recognizing that the first couple of days and weeks can be the most difficult as the new family adjusts, your cat's foster family will follow up with you to answer any questions or concerns as everybody settles in.
