P.U.R.R. reaches out to local shelters across state

December 17, 2012
The Inter-Mountain

People United for Rescue and Rehabilitation (P.U.R.R.) WV, Inc. has been busy helping other shelters in need.

A hoarding situation led to overcrowding at the Preston Co. Animal Shelter and P.U.R.R. responded on Nov. 17 by accepting cats and kittens from that shelter into its own Grafton shelter. Later, more than 30 cats and kittens were dumped at the Randolph County Animal Shelter. P.U.R.R. once more reached out to help, taking cats and kittens and arranging foster care for a mother with kittens.

P.U.R.R. was named an International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) Emergency Response Partner in February and an ASPCA Emergency Shelter Responder in May. As a result of the devastation in North Central West Virginia caused by Hurricane Sandy, P.U.R.R. has been providing emergency rescue and shelter, and crisis management in conjunction with West Virginia Department of Agriculture Threat Preparedness/Response Team, county offices of emergency management, county animal shelters, humane societies and other rescues and shelters throughout West Virginia.

P.U.R.R prides itself on having well-adjusted, socialized kitties ready for a place in your heart and home. P.U.R.R. 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. All the cats have been spayed/neutered; vaccinated, tested, wormed and micro-chipped. There's no better time to add a new member to your family with one of these special P.U.R.R. animals.

Ready to adopt but can't make the adoption event? Adopt at Eastern Pet Supply every day. The P.U.R.R. shelter is located in Grafton. Please email to or call 304-265-4671 for an appointment to visit all the wonderful P.U.R.R animals, including kittens and cats of all ages, shapes, colors and sizes. Want a de-clawed kitty? Those are available as well.

P.U.R.R. WV is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization working hard to help change the reality of cats and kittens through education about the NO-KILL Movement and the importance of spay and neuter.
