What Makes Us Care About Cats?

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. Let me introduce you to Shuveny Bower. This is our proud and needed "Someone". The saying is so relevant to Paws from Heaven. As an organisation, they came about when Simba arrived in December 2017. A kitten with leg paralysis. Rescued from horrendous circumstances. He required someone with the heart, soul, and dedication required for this special case. 

The aiding Simba page was created to help with raising funds for Simba. Due to popular demand, the Aiding Simba movement was registered as an NPO under the name Paws from Heaven. Simba earned his wings on the 6 June 2018. However, this did not mean the end of a legacy but rather the beginning of one. Paws from Heaven was the very first establishment to aid and facilitate aswell as rehabilitate abused, abandoned and special needs cats and kittens. A safe, loving environment that caters to each cat's special needs. Some of the cats can be rehomed but some are so shy , have special needs or are so reticent about human connection that they just cannot be rehomed. 

This is where Paws from heaven comes in. They are all free roaming at the sanctuary which doubles as Shuveney's home. We all know cats are gods and expect to be treated as such. At this unique rescue they are. Even when their angel wings are to be earned Shuveney holds and comforts each precious soul through these moments so that they are not alone or scared. With an amazing vet that does house calls for this special colony. 

How can you help? Donations of cat toys, bowls, F10, blankets, tins or bags of food or sponsorships of a specific cat. See the facebook page Aiding Simba. Monetary donations can be deposited into Paws Absa savings account 99277 633 817 Remember as a business that all donations to a charity/ NPO are tax deductible. So please help "the someone" who is willing and able to do what everyone knows someone should do. Making this world a better place one little soul at a time.
