Just trying to figure out the More section, and "community." I'll delete this once I check it out. Thanks, Marty!
I am adopting my 1st cat and I get the worst service ever. If a rescue place wants people to adopt their animals, they MUST be professional and provide decent customer service. We were misled by their false advertising on Milo & Lili. It says "may be adopted together or separate" but after completing our virtual meeting and we chose one, I get an email this morning saying "We are not able to adopt young kittens out as single pets" See picture below:
When I tried to argue it, I got " sorry and have a nice day" I would never recommend them to anyone due to their unprofessionalism 😡
We adopted this little boy Obi (formerly Pitter) along with his sister Stella (formerly Patter). Oh my! Not only is he the most affectionate kitten- but a mama’s boy.

Does your kitten sleep like this? Obi does! 🤣😂😹😸
Two year update: These two barnies are still here! They get about 6 feet from me in the mornings for feeding times. Charlie & Garfield🙂

The FDA is considering a guidance which can increase compounded animal medications by an average of 300%. This could be detrimental to our pets.

Please sign and share the petition to stop this!

Thank you 4Paws for allowing me to foster these beautiful kittens, Sophie and Cinnaman.
All 3 are 4Paws rescues - Maverick, Tamale and Goose. They love to “share” 🤣🤣🤣
Ramble and Rose are fitting right in and loving their new home... although Rose might be getting a bit annoyed with all the pictures :)
Thank you for matching is with the perfect kitties for our family 💜

Because of compassionate people that are willing to accept feral cats as a humane method of rodent control this beautiful girl Gumdrop had the opportunity to go to her forever home today! Not every feral cat is this lucky to have such an opportunity. If you can provide a safe outdoor haven for a feral cat or two please email [email protected]
Barn cats are delivered with all necessary supplies to get started within a hundred miles of Fairfax Virginia and they arrived already spayed and vaccinated with no cost to the caretaker

Foster homes needed! New arrivals Carol, Felix, and Gambito would love to get out of vet boarding and into cozy foster homes while they await adoption!

Carol comes to us from King George County Virginia Animal Control. Felix and Gambito come to us from a rescuer who took in more cats than she is able to care for long-term.

If you would be interested in fostering one of these cats while they await adoption, please email [email protected].

4Paws is looking for a safe / low traffic outdoor home for this friendly guy! He will be neutered prior to placement. If you are interested in giving Paul a home, please email [email protected].

From his current shelter:

Paul: 1 year, unaltered, male, 8.3lbs FELV-/FIV-
Sweet, sweet Paul is a one-of-a-kind guy looking for his forever. This little fella was brought to our shelter after he was found outside, and it was pretty clear immediately that something had to be wrong, as Paul had some swelling at the base of his tail, which he couldn't move. While we may never know what happened to poor Paul, despite his circumstances, this guy has been so friendly and just a joy to be around.

Upon examination, our vets noted that, besides the swelling, he was very sensitive to abdominal palpation. We sent him out to a partnering hospital for rads, which revealed a severe spinal/tail injury, so vets made the decision to amputate his tail.

These two boys are double trouble! Actually there are no trouble at all! Meet this laid-back pair of brothers, Hobbs and Thomas! These two boys originated from the Berkeley County Humane society in Martinsburg WV. They are ready for a loving home together but may also be adopted separately.

Marbles originally came to 4Paws from the Regional Center for Care and Protection in Roanoke, VA. Roanoke was adopted out through 4Paws, but has come back to find a new home as a single cat. It seems that this beauty wants all eyes on her and does not want to share the spotlight! She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and negative for FIV and FeLV. Interested in adopting Marbles?

Nev, Koz, Lacey, and London are all in need of homes after their owner passed away suddenly. The owner had brought these cats into his home after a feral mom showed up on his property with her kittens. He took them in, and they were a huge part of his life.
All four are good with other cats. Interested in adopting one of these beautiful seniors? Email [email protected], or visit our website at https://fourpaws.org.

Welcome 4Paws cat Queenie! Queenie is a new arrival from Langley Park, MD. Her rescuer had been working independently to help the homeless cats in her community and became overwhelmed. She reached out for 4Paws assistance in finding homes for some of the cats she has rescued. She is accustomed to living with other cats, but would also be just fine being someone's one & only! Queenie will be available for adoption (or a foster home) after 11/08 when scheduled for spay, vaccinations, microchipping and testing for FIV and FeLV.

4Paws kitten Georgia is an adorable Calico with a charming face and a soft, exquisite coat. She was just a tiny girl when she was rescued from the side of a road in West Virginia, where she had been abandoned! When she joined her foster parents she had a fractured leg, which has now completely healed. Georgia is now ready for a loving home of her own.

Being an easy going young girl, Georgia would benefit from the company of another young cat; in a single-cat household, she should be given plenty of attention. It is impossible not to fall for Georgia's sweet soul and gentle personality once you meet her.

Georgia is spayed and current on vaccinations, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, and has been microchipped. Interested in adopting Georgia? Visit our website at https://fourpaws.org.

The boys have just arrived at our adoption center in the Sterling Petco and are waiting to meet you!

Say hello to 4Paws kitten Isis! Isis is a sweet, slightly shy boy. He came to us as a tiny kitten with his mama and three littermates from North Carolina. His adopter will need to be patient while Isis adjusts to his new home. He has a personality typical of an orange tabby though. He's easygoing and loves to play.

He is great with the other kittens in his litter. He'll probably do well with dogs and children, as he's young and will grow into his new family. Kittens his age must be adopted in pairs unless there's another young cat in the home already.

It's with great sadness that we share the passing of 4Paws kitten Squash.

4Paws would like to sincerely thank everyone who helped with Squash's care, especially his loving foster family.

Rest in peace, Squash.

Big Boy is a handsome orange tabby who recently came to 4Paws from far-away Afghanistan. He loves to lounge about in his new country in the comfort of his foster home. He has acclimated nicely and is ready to become a permanent addition to some lucky family!

Big Boy is a very friendly guy who gets along well with other cats. He would do fine as a single cat or in a home with other cats and would probably do best in a home without children. He has not had exposure to dogs.

Big Boy came to 4Paws from the Kabul Small Animal Rescue organization in Afghanistan. He is one of about a dozen or so that 4Paws is helping to find adoptive homes.

Big Boy's estimated birth date is December 2017. He is neutered, is current on vaccinations, has tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and is microchipped.
