Our Story

WAYWARD PAWS, Inc. was founded in 2006 to help slow the growing cat over-population problem. We rescue, vet, foster and find forever homes for homeless cats/kittens. We are made up of a core group of dedicated volunteers whose mission it is to slow the over-population of cats (40,000 kittens are born in the U.S. everyday) in the CNY area! We do this by spaying/neutering, TNR (trap/neuter/return), fostering and finding cats/kittens forever homes! We serve Onondaga, Madison, Oswego, Cayuga and Cortland counties. We go wherever there is a need for our services! If you are interested in adopting a beautiful kitty (or two) from us, please visit our ADOPTION page. Also, located inside the PetCo-DeWitt on Erie Blvd. is our Adoption Room where our cats/kittens are waiting to be found by their forever families!!


Our passion is cats and we try to do as much as we can to care for and help find homes for these beautiful creatures.
