Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Purrs & Whiskers, Inc. is a non-profit organization serving Stafford, Virginia and its surrounding areas, whose mission is to employ the best practices of the TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) philosophy. For those deemed adoptable, we provide temporary foster care while actively seeking loving permanent living situations. This is accomplished by providing compassion, daily nourishment, and basic wellness care for both individual cats, as well as colonies of free-roaming, homeless cats living outdoors. When feasible, we will collaborate with local shelters in an effort to relieve over-crowding by identifying and adopting out shelter cats into appropriate, permanent living situations.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed its the only thing that ever does." -Margaret Mead
This quote is exactly what we're all about. A group of experienced cat rescuers, with a common vision, have joined forces to created Purrs & Whiskers, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit TNR/Rescue group right here in North Stafford with some very dedicated people, each with a unique set of skills and resources that can really make a difference! Our goal is simple... no cat should ever suffer. Between adoptions, fosters, and TNR programs, we take care of as many cats in the community as possible. The Purrs & Whiskers team invites YOU to join our team of friendly volunteers & learn how you can help the kitties in the community! Whether you are interested in trapping, fostering, crafting goodies to sell, or representing P&W at events, we'd love to meet you!
