Meet Julia.

She is a young, diluted torti-cat with an expressive face. PAWS volunteers say someone abandoned her with a litter of kittens. The kittens are weaned and adopted, but Julia is still looking for her forever home. Volunteers say she loves being around people and is very friendly.

Julia is spayed, brought up-to-date on her vaccinations and cleared of any parasites. If you are interested in seeing Julia, please visit Valley Cat Haven during open hours on Sat. from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. or call Jean at 207-543-7348 for an appointment.

PAWS is a nonprofit organization that rescues abandoned cats in the St. John Valley. To see Julia or the other cats in need of a home, call to make an appointment, or visit during walk-in hours on Saturdays. Organization members believe most pets can be socialized and prefer not to release them back outdoors, as winters are harsh in Northern Maine. PAWS operates as a no-kill shelter. Their mission is to get owners to spay and/or neuter their animals to help cut down on the population and give all animals a better chance at a quality life.

PAWS Animal Welfare, Inc. spays, neuters and vaccinates mature animals before they are placed out for adoption.
