Here's what we are up to now

Paws and Whiskers Kitten Shower

We are having a Kitten Shower on Saturday, April 30, 2022 from 12-4pm! The Shower will take place in the parking lot of the shelter at 32 Hillwyck Dr., Toledo, OH. The event is free to the public.

The Kitten Shelter helps us to stock up for the needed supplies for the influx of kittens. “Spring means many kittens need help,” stated Sara Baker, Paws and Whiskers Shelter Director. “Many kittens are found abandoned and need significant care to help them survive. These kittens are then fully vetted and made available for adoption.”

Shower attendees will be able to do a kitten nursery peek in, as well as games, activities, face painting and a photo station. There will be a coffee and food truck available for food purchases.

Come on over, bring your friends and family! What could be more fun than kittens, games and more kittens! We hope to see you on Saturday.


Reading with Cats

Paws and Whiskers is excited to offer a reading program! Available anytime during business hours Tues - Sun 12-4, children can sign up to read to cats for 30 minutes at a time. Reading to animals has been proven to be beneficial for all children, but especially  for reluctant readers, as animals provide a safe, supportive atmosphere for kids and don't mind mistakes. Children will also be able to take a book home at the end of their session thanks to our partnership with Read for Literacy. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times during the reading program. Call the shelter at 419-536-1914 to reserve your time! 

Nail Trims!

Just like people, sometimes cats nails can get a little long, which can cause pain for your cat, your furniture and the backs of your hands at playtime - ouch! Paws and Whiskers offers nail trims for $5 (cash only please!) during all open hours. Please call 419-539-1914 to schedule your appointment and save your couch! 

Please email Jen Pollard at with any questions.
