Meet the Cat Crew

Our PawsPartners Center provides a safe, home-like setting for rescued cats. But new places can be scary for less confident kitties. That's where our Cat Crew comes in. These dedicated volunteers spend many hours every day socializing shy cats, spotting health concerns and behavior issues, and working to get to know each cat so that we can find the best home. A-PAL and all of our adoptable felines are fortunate to have this amazing team working behind the scenes to get our furry friends ready for their forever families.

Your Donations Save Lives

Axel's New Lease

This big, lovable cat was brought in as a stray, unneutered and living with a rare and painful condition known as entropion eye. Axel's eyelids turned inward, which meant his eyelashes and skin were constantly rubbing against the eye's surface. Despite his obvious discomfort, Axel was friendly and patient with our staff. We arranged for Axel to be neutered and also have eyelid tuck surgery. He is recovering well and will be ready for his forever home soon. Axel's lifesaving eye surgery was only possible thanks to generous donations from our supporters. Learn more.

Answered Prayers for Alfred

The perfect home for our adoptable animals is always out there. We just need to find it. In the case of Alfred, his new family found us. Alfred was born with cerebellar hypoplasia, also known as wobbly cat  syndrome. It's a condition in which the part of the brain responsible for coordination and balance fails to develop properly, resulting in an unsteady gait. The Cat Crew worked miracles getting Alfred comfortable with people, but with his medical condition, his prospects for finding a home were limited. Then one day Tracy and her son came to A-PAL asking for the least adoptable cat. Once they saw Alfred, they were smitten. Alfred's back legs wobble, but he has no trouble getting to the litter box, food and water dishes, and into the bed to sleep with his new owner, who adores him. Some things are just meant to be.
