HELP! MassPAWS volunteers are on the streets daily helping homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. If you talk to some of our volunteers they could pull all-nighters and do whatever it takes to help  and we are so proud of them and grateful. The problem is not that we donít have enough of the physical help and our  biggest problem is that we run out of funds.  An example of some of what we do in a month's time is this;  we helped out with 16 cats in a hoarding situation in Revere. We have trapped up to 10 cats in a week from various cities where neutering/spaying services were provided and there we released them back to their colonies.  There have been moms and kittens taken from a situation in Chelsea where kittens were literally falling from the ceiling.  One of the cats that was taken in from another situation in Lynn was a sweet, friendly FIV+ boy; this little guy had abscesses all over his body.  Many of the cats that we help need medical care beyond the normal spay/neuter and vaccines.  Cats what was taken in from another situation in Lynn who was a sweet, friendly FIV+ boy who has accesses all over his body was treated.   The numbers of cats and kittens seems not to be running out any time soon. It is our bank account that gets depleted rapidly. Wonít you please find a few dollars to help us help the many in-need.

Top Reasons to Keep YOUR Cat Indoors

Outdoor cats are killed & maimed by cars each year
Cats are killed & tortured by humans for fun
Dogs maim and coyotes eat outdoor cats
Extreme temperatures like heat or cold kill thousands of cats a year
Toxins like antifreeze and poisons kill cats
Feline leukemia, FIV and Feline Infectious Peritonitis are diseases
outdoor cats are more
vulnerable too; they get into fights with other cats

that are kept indoors live at least 50% longer than cats that are allowed outdoors! Your vet bills will be much lower as your cat is less likely to be injured or attacked in a safe indoor environment
