Penelope, Our first rescue kitten

Penelope was an abandoned three week old kitten when we found her. At first we fed her kitten formula from a bottle. Living outside, she had many parasites and soon needed medical care. She soon adapted to indoor life as a member of our family.

The "Maroon Five" kittens

Six years later, we found the "maroon five kittens" in a charcoal box in a backyard while doing yard work. Their cat mommy had left them there for protection, but she was killed by dogs while looking for food for her babies. They too were about three weeks old and had to be bottle fed at first. Alvin, Simon, Theodore and Luke were orange males while Joy was an all black female. Well maybe only four were "maroon," but the name given by a veterinary assistant stuck.

So many pets need help!

We try to help so many other pets who need help. Some are abused or sick and need medical assistance. Some are rescued from hoarders. Some need homes because their owners are sick or have died. Some are just abandoned by their owners. So we started Offer A Paw, Inc. so you could assist us in helping a lot more pets.

In remembrance of our beloved Lola and Freddy
