Who Are We?
It's Sweet Martha!
This fine looking, sassy spayed female feline is aptly named Sweet Martha, and she began her "new" life with us after we took her in from the Red Lake Reservation in Northwest Minnesota.
While this plump little four-year-old darling isn't too particular about the food she eats, she is rather fussy about the company she keeps, so Sweet Martha would be at her loving best in a home as an only cat. She is loving and affectionate to her humans, so you can sure count on this Queen of the House to be a loyal, purring subject when she nuzzles up to you for a scratch behind an ear or a very gentle belly rub.
Who are we?
Cause for Paws is a Minnesota nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1998. It is a small all-volunteer group of friends who love cats and want to make a difference for cats in our community.
The small group's main focus is helping stray and abandoned cats and kittens find loving, permanent homes. Cats are fostered in volunteers' homes; there is no shelter facility. The goal of every Cause for Paws adoption is a home where the cat and the other family members -- both two-legged and four-legged -- will thrive.
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.Go to Top

Things to consider When You Adopt a Cat

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.
The work of all-volunteer Cause for Paws is entirely supported by donations -- monetary, food and other cat supplies, and time and talent shared by fabulous people. We appreciate your support!
