Paw Warriors is an amazing organization helping cats start a new life! They came out to my neighborhood on Gray Fox Lane in Port Richey to TNR the cats in the area and they handled this with extreme professionalism and managed to trap many cats within minutes and within an hour had all of them...they took them all, had them spayed/neutered, dewormed, shots and deflead and released some back here and kept some at their sanctuary that were good candidates to be socialized and find good homes for them. Tracie Steger is an amazing woman and does all of this out of the kindness of her heart and love for all animals.

It takes a level of compassion that most people will never fully comprehend to take the innocent souls that have been abandoned, stray or neglected, and provide them with the possibility of a new life! This facility does exactly that by providing a safe place, food, medical attention, and most importantly, all the love they deserve. As a world that is seeing a "throw away" mentality develop all around us, this group is essential for our community! These tiny little souls have been forgotten by so many and it is time we step up and support the people that are dealing with the problem "we" created! Thank you to all of our Paw Warriors!

I have to say that PawWarriors has been their for me & my fur babies more times than I can count. I am very grateful for their dedication they have for their fur- babies . I have adopted my kitty from Tracie about 4 years ago & I just love him so. I try to donate to them with food & litter or money often they can definitely use it for the fur- babies! You won't regret it.

My 17 year old cat had just passed away from cancer and I was devastated. My husband said that he had found me a tortie-I hadn't had one in the 6 months since I lost my 18 year old cat to cancer. When we arrived, it was like therapy for my broken heart. There were so many super friendly cats seemingly wanting to be your new best friend. The tortie we went to see was acting standoffish-she was a typical tortie. While walking around we fell in love with another cat, a cross eyed Siamese mix. We agreed to take the tortie that night since we knew she was felv and fiv negative. We also said that we wanted the Siamese as long as she was negative. We took the tortie home that night and within 30 minutes she was no longer afraid and has been living on my lap since. One week later they delivered the Siamese and she has also been a wonderful friend. The cats you can adopt are all super friendly, even though it may not seem that way for all of them. They just need someone to love them and make them their own.
Tracey is a phenomenal human with a gigantic heart. She will do anything she can to help. More people need to know how great they are and adopt their cats so that they will always have room to help others.

Tracie and the Paw Warriors are truly warriors. Tracie's expertise in kitty rescue and care has been achieved through education, dedication, and pure love. There's not a situation that she and the warriors won't attempt to tackle when it comes to the vast array of misfortunes that befall so many homeless and neglected feline families. Those fortunate kittens and cats that become adoptable, are the result of hard work which includes medical care, proper housing, socialization from all the volunteers that come to love on the kitties, vaccines and spay/neutering. For three years I have watched Tracie and the warriors build this amazing facility called Misfit Acres and see all the happy and healthy cats that thrive there as permanent residents and adoptable pets.

Paw Warriors Inc are true heroes to the cats in our community. They make a difference everyday and do so with true compassion to the animals they help. I called them when we had a stray cat having kittens under our shed, and for the stray cat overpopulation on my dead end street. They are great and I've been supportive to the organization ever since!! Thank You Paw Warriors!!

Tracie is truly an angel among us! She has given her hear and soul to her mission of saving these cats. I met Tracie when I pleaded for help on FB for a cat trap to catch a cat I had been feeding for months that was living under a parked truck near a carwash. The cat would not come close enough for me to catch him. Tracie saw the post and immediately offered to come and help me. Two nights we spent trying to catch the cat and when we finally did..Tracie took him and nursed him back to health. I could not have done this without her help. That cat was adopted and now has a forever home. Tracie has sacrificed so much for the sake of these animals . Paw Warriors is an asset to our community and cats everywhere!!

I adopted a kitten from Tracie. She was found by neighbor and only four weeks old. Due to Tracie's efforts the kitten was rescued, de-wormed and formula fed. I was able to take her home and the kitten has grown into a healthy sassy cat.

I moved to Spring Hill, Fl. in 2010. I adopted 2 rescue cats that I saw on Petfinder from Paw Warriors. I was in awe at how much they go above and beyond to help these beautiful animals. We feed a colony at our new place. One day, we heard meowing as we were putting out the food and water. We found a little orange cat stuck in an eight foot deep space behind our neighbors shed which was kitty cornered up against a cement wall. Immediately we called Tracie Steger of Paw Warriors and told her the situation. She came right away and brought a friend who could fit in the space. We lowered a ladder and her friend went down with a net and got the cat out of the hole, put her in a carrier and took her to Misfit Acres where Paw Warriors resides. The cat was 5 months old and only weighed 2.5 pounds. Tracie nursed her back to health. She had been eating leaves and stones. Poor thing. So, we adopted her when she got better. If it wasn't for Paw Warriors, Newt would have not had a chance. Paw Warriors does so much for these creatures. I recommend them to all who need outdoor colonies TNR. And to those who need advice. Tracie is a beautiful soul. My profile pic was taken by Tracie Steger and I am holding a puppy named Hero who was dropped by a bird of prey. Tracie rescued him and treated him and found him his forever home.

I love paw warriors. I recently came across an ad looking for help with a kitten that was run over. I took the kitten to the vet hoping they could help. Well I'm broke and paw warriors stepped up to cover the vet bill. The kitten was in bad shape. Tracie took the kitten and took care of it every 2 hours with feeding and fluids etc. The kitten is doing better. This is not the first time paw warriors has helped with stray cats and definitely won't be the last time. This is what rescue is about.
