PAHS is one of the few humane societies nationwide with no animal shelter.

For a century, our mission has been to alleviate the suffering of animals, increase public sensitivity to animal issues, and elevate the status of animals in our society.

Corky (Animal ID 7613313)

We are dedicated to improving the lives of feral and social cats and in controlling the population by the use of TNR. Trap-Neuter-Return is an effective, internationally recognized program by which cats are trapped, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and returned to their original location to be cared for. Kittens and cats that can be socialized are taken into foster care and are then put up for adoption.

We are not based at a shelter or in one location on 13th Street. All of our animals are housed in foster homes. You can find us at different petfairs during the month or at various neighborhood functions.

You can help our organization and the neighborhood by volunteering to trap cats and transporting them to the vet for vaccinations and neutering, fundraising, fostering cats temporarily in your home or even just donating to the cause.

Cats R Us (Gambrills, Maryland 20154) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) cat and kitten rescue organization in the Annapolis area whose focus is educating communities about non-lethal and humane care of community cats; controlling the community cat population through TNR (Trap, Neuter, and Return); and the promotion of low-cost community spay/neuter clinics and initiatives. TNR means community cats are humanely trapped, vaccinated, sterilized, and ear-tipped (for identification) by veterinarians.

Bows

Kittens caught early enough are tamed, vetted, and available for adoption when they are of an appropriate age. We have a small team dedicated to this segment of rescue, along with socializing and care of abandoned adults both of which have grown to be an integral part of our overall efforts.

As a feline rescue group, it is all too common to find abandoned, domesticated cats. These cats enter our program, are vetted, and put up for adoption as soon as possible.

Cats R Us does not accept owner surrendered pets, but can direct you to other organizations that may assist you. We can assist you by listing your cat on Petfinder.com and if there is space available at our adoption shows around the area.

In our 15 years of existence, nearly 15,000 cats have been spayed/neutered and vaccinated at the cost-effective CRU clinics. This has contributed greatly to the effort of controlling the problem of feline over-population in our area.

Catnip Clinics
One Sunday each month, Operation Catnip’s small army of dedicated volunteers assemble at Farmer’s Veterinary Hospital and transform it into a large surgical center, allowing us to spay/neuter, vaccinate, and attend to the medical needs of as many as 80+ stray and feral cats. This “army of compassion” consists of licensed veterinarians and concerned citizens of all walks of life, who share a common interest in enriching the lives of stray and feral cats. Are you a caretaker needing spay/neuter assistance for strays and ferals? If so please call (804) 228-6479. Appointments for the clinic are mandatory!

Since 2001, we have successfully “snipped and clipped” – that is, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and ear tipped – approximately 600 homeless cats each year in central Virginia. As of April 2014, we have helped over 10,000 cats lead healthier and non-reproductive lives. We’ve helped the cats, the taxpayers who would otherwise pay to euthanize the cats at local shelters, and we’ve helped the caretakers who faithfully feed and care for their own colonies. Thank you for helping us to continue our good work.
