Studies show that cats kept in habitat enclosures recover faster & stress less than in metal or wire cages. The stress an animal feels on a continued basis directly affects it's immune system, often causing them to become ill.
To this end we have renovated our kennels, creating home-style environments filled with all things Cat; Cat trees, climbing posts, bridges, beds, blankets and toys.
Here at Paws Crossed we are committed to the health and well-being of all the guests in the Paws Crossed neighbourhood. With the help of Dr.Liz and the Neepawa Veterinary Clinic we are able to offer our guests outstanding medical care. Our Volunteers work continuously to build new, and improve existing, habitats so our guests can be as comfortable as possible during their stay. We are committed to the 5 freedoms (Freedom from hunger or thirst, freedom from discomfort, freedom from pain injury or disease, freedom to express normal behaviour and freedom from fear and distress.) We rely 100% on volunteer labour and community donations to keep the shelter running and our guests happy, healthy and adoptable.
Here at Paws Crossed we believe in giving back to the community that generously supports the work we do. To date, we've established the Community Outreach Team offering animal visits to Seniors complexes, Personal Care Homes and other places in the community as requested to bring joy to residents. We have also worked with MSAR Service dogs on developing our Service and Facility Cat Pilot programs. The initial group of animals has been sponsored by Rosser Medical Group made available at no charge to those in need.
