As an inde­pen­dent Char­ity, we receive no gov­ern­ment fund­ing, and rely solely on the gen­eros­ity of supporters


This shel­ter has been here for over 20 years and was orig­i­nally run
in con­junc­tion with  Small Paws Board­ing Cattery.  A year ago the board­ing side shut down and it  is now run entirely as an ani­mal shelter.

Many years ago one of our local vets told me that before we came on to the scene most unwanted ani­mals taken into the surgery were destroyed — cats dogs, kit­tens, pup­pies. Every­thing. The fate of those which didn’t get as far as the surgery doesn’t bear think­ing about. Ani­mals which were found on the street were kept for their ‘legal’ time, after which, if nobody turned up for them or a new owner couldn’t be found,  they were also destroyed.

No fund­ing is received from the Scot­tish or local Gov­ern­ments, nor from the   lot­tery. All the money  received is from dona­tions and  fundrais­ing efforts.
We are all vol­un­teers, no-one gets paid a penny, and we pay our own expenses.  All of the money we raise is spent on the animals.

Although Small Paws Res­cue is mainly involved with cats and kit­tens we can also take in, for rehom­ing, other domes­tic pets (except dogs). Please have a look at our ‘other ani­mals’ page for infor­ma­tion on that.

Our shel­ter is no-kill, except on a vet’s advice.


Please note that Small Paws Res­cue is not
involved with dog res­cue
