About Us…

Central Paws does NOT have a shelter. We are strictly a small volunteer organization which operates mainly on donations.   We are not affiliated with any other organization.   We are a registered charity BN 89085 2809 RR0001 (www.cra.gc.ca/charities).   For the past 11 years we have saved the lives of approximately 500+ animals and helped so many […]



Frankie is now neutered and fully vaccinated against the cat flu, dewormed and fl/felv negative.

Frankie is one of 4 feral cats recently rescued.  He and his brothers were likely born outside as they were feral (not tame).    Frankie’s 2 brothers and his Momma have found their wonderful furever homes, Frankie is waiting patiently.

Frankie isn’t much of a cuddler yet.  But he does enjoy being talked to, played with, brushed and having time spent with him.  He may never really enjoy being picked up, but there are non feral cats who aren’t fussy about the trappings of a good cuddle.

We are sure though in time he will be a faithful companion.

If you are interested in adopting Frankie please email us at centralpaws@yahoo.ca us for an application.

Buttercup and Bobbles both have great homes.


Bobbles (male with white paws) and Buttercup (female all tabby) were rescued from the dangers of life outside.  They were found in a garden where the mom was trying to protect them from a Tom cat intent on doung hard.  They were all feral and sadly only Bobbles and Buttercup were rescued.

Now 6 weeks old, these two have another 2 weeks before they can be vetted for adopting.  We will fl/fiv test, been working on their deworming, they will get the cat flu vaccine and we cover the spay/neuter.

We always like to keep pairs together, but will consider separating if necessary.  We do a 2 for 1 adoption.  If you are interested please email us at centralpaws@yahoo.ca


Please open up your heart and home to help.  We desperately need foster homes for cats and kittens who have been abandoned.  AND WE NEED DONATIONS to help with spay and neuters.  We always have a long wait list and it’s so sad when we are finally able to fix a cat in need only to book and spay and then a couple of days before manage to have someone get the cat inside and she has kittens … 
IF YOU ARE IN CENTRAL  NEWFOUNDLAND … We need your help.  If you can foster, please email us for a application at centralpaws@yahoo.ca
If you can donate, PLEASE either etransfer to centralpaws@yahoo.ca (email us your password for the transfer and mailing address).  You can drop a donation off directly to the Exploits Valley Animal Hospital, they will put it on our account and take your name and address.  OR MAIL IT DIRECTLY TO Central Paws, PO Box 294, Grand Falls Windsor, NL.

Help cats and kittens like Sassy and Quinton who were 2 lucky ones.
