P.U.R.R West Virginia is a no kill, all volunteer, cat only shelter/rescue that is saving lives and making the world a more humane place; one kitty at a time. We pride ourselves on having well adjusted, socialized kitties that are ready for a place in your heart and home.
Our non-profit organization is run entirely by donations.  We are not state or government funded.

P.U.R.R. West Virginia is a grass-roots, non-profit 501(c)3 volunteer organization funded entirely by grants and tax-deductible donations from cat lovers like you. Your donation goes directly to providing on-going care year round for abused and orphaned kitties, to heal their bodies and spirits on their way to a new chance in a furr-ever home. And for those who may not find the perfect family, PURR offers a safe place for the rest of their lives. At any given day, about 260 cats live in open rooms where they can roam and play, where they can socialize with other cats and with our volunteers. Thanks to your generosity, the cats have a quality of life they would otherwise not have. 

Through your kindness, in 2013 PURR WV adopted out over 700 well socialized cats. This is an increase from 500 cats in 2012, 250 cats in 2011, and 180 in 2010! Your donations allowed us to finally build our in-house clinic where we spayed and neutered over 1000 cats in 2013 alone! With your help, we distributed cat and dog food after a big storm to area shelters, rescuers and TNR caretakers, moved a feral cat colony in Marion county, WV, created the first TNR initiative in Braxton county, WV, and joined in with Alley Cat Allies for educational material to adults and children in our communities.

You helped us achieve this! Thank you for what you continue to do for the cats in our care. Together we can make a difference, one dollar at a time. Please make a donation today to allow us to save even more lives in 2014 and keep our dream alive: make the world a more humane place, one kitty at a time! Thank you!

Did you know that PURR WV is a sanctuary for cats who are "unadoptable" due to age, illness or disposition?  PURR WV has many amazing cats who reside in the sanctuary and need daily care like medical exams, medicine, food, water, litter, and of course, a comfortable place to live our their years! PURR WV's sanctuary has all sorts of residents: some with terminal cancer, some with chronic skin conditions, some who are just simply considered elderly.  PURR WV is able to provide long-term care for these special animals through support and donations of cat lovers like YOU!  PURR WV thanks you for any donation, no matter how large or small, so that we are able to continue providing loving care for these animals for the rest of their lives.  Donate by clicking here!

P.U.R.R. West Virginia is currently in need of financial donations and volunteers to rescue and improve the lives of cats and kittens statewide.  We are a volunteer organization funded entirely by tax-deductible donations from cat lovers like you.  Please donate today by clicking here.
