Poquoson Animal Welfare Sanctuary, Inc. is dedicated to the rescue and placement of abandoned, abused, and neglected cats in and around Poquoson, VA.  Our vision for these animals is a safe place that will provide them with food, shelter, medical care, rehabilitation, adoption opportunities, and most importantly, love. 


Spay/neuter is a priority to control the overpopulation of these animals in our community. 

P.A.W.S is a non-profit organization 501(c)(3) that relies on public support in the form of volunteers and donations.

*Before you start feeding a cat, make sure they do not belong to someone first!  Call our lost and found coordinator, Deb 757-593-6433, if you have lost or found a cat in Poquoson.
