Who we Are
 
Englewood, Florida’s “World’s Greatest Cathouse,“ Puffy Paws Kitty Haven is a 501(c) (3) non-profit, no-kill cat hospice and rescue specializing in providing quality and loving care to special needs cats and finding homes for the adoptable kitties under thier care.
 
No - Kill

Here at Puffy Paws Kitty Haven we do not put down any animals for behavior problems, space or adopt-ability issues. Yet Puffy Paws Kitty Haven never has and never will let any kitty suffer with any medical condition that only allows pain & suffering and no chance of survival.
 
We realize that their is outside forces who believe that their is no such thing as  " No-Kill" .  
 
No Kill sheltering models, based on innovative, non-lethal programs and services, have already saved the lives of tens of thousands of animals. 
 
But instead of embracing No Kill, many shelters—and their national agency allies—cling to their failed models of the past, models that result in the killing of millions of dogs and cats in U.S. shelters every year.

Here at Puffy Paws Kitty Haven we wish not to be drawn into public controversy over our " No-Kill "statues, we only wish to save the lives of the unwanted kitties of the Community.

 
Puffy Paws Kitty Haven unofficially began 20 years ago in the loving home of Chrissy & Rick Kingston.
 
Now Englewood, Florida’s “World’s Greatest Cathouse,“ Puffy Paws Kitty Haven is a non-profit no-kill cat hospice and rescue specializing in providing quality and loving care to special needs cats and finding homes for the adoptable kitties under their care.
 
A Reporter from ABC 7 News has called Puffy Paws Kitty Haven " A Bed & Breakfast For Cats ". Another reporter from the Gasparilla Gazette, wrote " Puffy Paws Kitty Haven is immaculate and if all the cats hid under the bed, anyone entering the home would have no clue cats even lived there.
 
Since the airing of the Video in October 2008 on Pet Pulse and being on the NEW YORK POST web site.The kitties have doubled along with the daily cost and we now have 3,000 dollars in monthly operating expenses.“Puffy Paws cares for kitties with feline leukemia, FIV, feral cats, unadoptable kitties, one eye cats, senior kitties, kitties that do not use their litter box, abused kitties, cats with neurological disorders, abused kitties and more - basically unwanted and unadoptable kitties that would be euthanized elsewhere.

THE HAVEN
 
Puffy Paws is set up to handle the different medical concerns the kitties have by separating them into their very own living quarters.
 
The 2700 sq foot " Haven Home " has their healthy adoptable kitties, andtheir permanent residence who have physical, emotional and behavioral problems. 
 
Their 2nd building is 800 sq foot and 400 sq foot of it is solely use for the kitties with feline leukemia, which we have nick named " The Kitty Angel Club " because all the precious fur-babies are living angels who are living out their lives.

History Of Puffy Paws Kitty Haven

 

Puffy Paws Kitty Haven (PPKH) unofficially began 20 years ago in the loving home of Chris & Rick Kingston.

Side Note - ( Since than all official business with Puffy Paws Kitty Haven has moved outside the Kingston's home. The only thing that was left behind in the big business move-out in the Fall of 2009 was all thosee pesky little kitties.)

PPKH never even had an official name until the Fall of 2006. Prior to that, it existed only as the founders of Puffy Paws, Chris & Rick Kingston, taking in another unwanted kitty or a whole family of kitties into their home.

Over those 11 years, Chris Kingston has estimated that she has worked thousands of hours taking care of the kitties. Throughout the early years, the Kingston's have spent well over $100,000.00 on these loving, unwanted kitties (many of which are now a permanent part of their family).

In order to serve the kitties better, the Kingston's decided that it would be a great idea to form a Not-for-Profit Corporation, for the direct benefit of the kitties. 

Puffy Paws Kitty Haven was named after a small sickly little kitten that was part of the Kingston's family for only a year. The Kitty's name was Poo-Puffy Paws ,or Poo Puff for short; he was such a happy little kitten. Sadly enough, he passed away during Hurricane Charlie.

Naming the Haven after him represented to us something we hoped other folks would know: that one kitty at a time can change the heart of one person at a time. 

In the Fall of 2006, Puffy Paws Kitty Haven started the process of officially forming as a Not-For-Profit Corporation in the state of Florida. PPKH hired the law firm of Spiegel & Utrera, P.A., from Tampa, Florida to accomplish this task.

On November 20th, 2006 the dream became a reality: Puffy Paws Kitty Haven became a Not-For-Profit Corporation. Forming as a non-profit allows PPKH to raise funds for these loving kitties and all the future kitties that will need our help.

On February 16, 2009 Puffy Paws Kitty Haven completed the necessary paperwork for 501(c)(3) tax exempt status, thanks to the Ralph and Virginia Mullen Foundation.

The IRS must love kitties. The reason being the kitties lawyers sent out their application for 501(c)(3) tax exempt statues with the IRS on Feb 20th.

On Monday March 23rd,we received the official designation letter from the IRS.

It only took 31 days for the IRS to approve our application ! That is a record amount of time ! Over here at Puffy Paws we never heard of an application getting approved in that short of time.

Now Puffy Paws Kitty Haven is worldwide known.

Thanks to the wonderful grant we receive from the Ralph and Virginia Mullen Foundation.
