Mission and Values

Our Mission

The mission of 4 Paws is to promote the physical and psychological well being of animals by providing a safe haven for cats while finding them adoptive homes or lifelong shelter.

Currently we achieve this mission by
  • Providing shelter, medical care, evaluation, and treatment to cats who have become homeless
  • Finding homes for the cats and kittens in our care
  • Providing people who care for cats with resources, education, and support to help keep human-animal bonds strong and prevent cats from becoming homeless
Our Guiding Values
  • Compassion for cats: We focus on the individual welfare and future of each cat in need
  • Expertise: We strive to be experts in cat welfare, health, behavior, sheltering, and related programs
  • Respect for people: We treat our employees, volunteers, donors, clients, and community with respect
  • Impact: We have a significant and measurable positive impact on the cats in our community
  • Collaboration: We work with other individuals and organizations to save more lives
  • Integrity: We act with integrity and value transparency
  • Excellence: We strive for excellence in every aspect of our work
