I've been volunteering for Paw Warriors for 3 years, what we do is rare. There's very few places that cater to the needs of sick, injured, neglected and abused. We also do hospice when necessary. We have whipped cream parties, rotisserie chicken parties. We keep them warm in the winter and we are currently working to add air conditioned areas along adding more fencing and building's. If you like Kitty's, you've got to see this!

They are the best cat rescue. They are so focused on matching the right cat to the right person. I loved having my cat choose me, they have an amazing set up. They were so available and wonderful ehen it came to helping me adopt my kitty. Even when she got sick qnd it was late at night, one of the wonderful ladies called me and helped me through it, together she helped me get my cat to eat and drink something at night on a weekend. Simply incredible!

Paw Warriors has stepped up and helped me personally with 5 injured kitties! They have kept the old and sick to live their last days knowing comfort and love. I have been to their place numerous times and so much to see. Anytime someone posts about an inured animal I tell them to immediately contact Paw Warriors or the owner personally. I have no pictures to share as this is a new phone.

I have been fortunate over the past two years to work side by side with many of the dedicated volunteers at Paw Warriors. I have learned the true meaning of compassion and going the extra mile for those injured and need critical care. So many in need and very few turned away. Let’s give them some Paw for a great job.

Paw Warriors Inc. is definitely the best by far.
A dying feral cat had found it's way to my front porch. Not knowing what to do, I reached out to them for help. They instructed me to take the cat immediately to Urgent Care. I ended up leaving the cat there for treatment. The next morning I received a heartfelt message from Paw Warriors saying the cat had to be sent to the Rainbow Bridge AND the reasons why. They had never met me or knew anything about this feral cat but were there when this cat was in need. The love and compassion they showed simply amazed me. I'll be forever grateful they were there, not only for the dying cat but for me as well in this time of crisis.

Where do I even start! This rescue is absolutely amazing! When ever someone reaches out to them they always answer! I've had the pleasure of visiting their happy hour(or as I like to refer it as heaven) you get to meet all the fur babies you read about in their post and see how they healed and are now safe and loving life! To me and our community PAW Warriors are real heroes.

I have been following this organization for a couple of years. I have visited their facility to drop off donations. Their dedication and compassion are fully apparent when you see the animals, specifically the cats, they have rescued and keep at the sanctuary. They provide a valuable service to gather community and to the animals they help.

Paw Warriors goes above & beyond to help the most neglected and vulnerable kitties in our area. They respond all hours of the day & night to cats with the most horrendous injuries. Without them, most would not make it. Then they bring these kitties to a stable home where they lovingly tend them. The selflessness of the volunteers simply amazes me.

We started to go to Paw Warriors for their happy hour just to love on the kitties and to socialize them. We were so impressed at all they do. They are an amazing place. we were so touched with what they do for these precious lives. They are so selfless when it comes to the them. We kept going to love on all the babies with no intentions of adopting. Well we didn't adopt a kitty he adopted us. Every time we would visit he would spend the entire time on one of our laps. we finally gave in and took him home. I can't say enough about how amazing Paw Warriors is.

I started supporting this organization one and a half years ago when I moved to Florida. I’ve made one trip to the facility. I was pleasantly surprised with how nice it was. The animals are well cared for, get lots of socialization, have room to roam yet lots of places to escape the sun.

After we lost our 20 year old Siamese, we found Paw Warriors. I told Tracie I wanted a snuggly cuddly cat. She said to see who picked me. Sure enough Pop Tart picked me and is everything I asked for. Then we saw Uno and fell in love with him too. They are great additions to our family. Paw Warriors gives so much care to all kinds of cats that are brought to them. Many are feral and enjoy the large cat fenced outdoor areas as well as the several small buildings. They provide routine medical care to all the cats and advanced medical care to those that need it. Our Pop Tart was one of those that benefitted from that kind of care before we met her. They also provide care and love to aged cats and those at the end of life. Donations are used for essentials. There is no wasteful overhead.

Even though I did not adopt a kitten they helped me by lending me 2 traps and the information I needed to get two feral cats fixed. One happened to be a female (7 mo old) and the other a male (3 years old). That was 2 years ago and we still feed them and give them flea protection. I donate quite a bit to only this rescue as I feel they do a wonderful job rescuing and TNR. They never say no to any rescue situation. As far as I am concerned this is a great rescue.

I adopted Minnie Mew from Paw Warriors. They saved this little girls life. Two ladies, Mary and Carol who rescue for Paw Warriors allowed me the honor of adopting her. She was found under a trailer after giving birth to two stillborn kittens. When they rescued her she still had one stillborn kitten in her. She was too young at that time to become a mother. She had a terrible infection from the dead kitten inside of her. They immediately took her to a veterinarian and the kitten had to be surgically removed and she was put on antibiotics and many other measures were taken to save her life. They saved her life and cared for her until she was strong enough to be available for adoption. After being vetted I adopted her. My husband had just lost his female Tuxedo cat that passed away at 25 years old. And, he missed her. So I adopted Minnie Mew who resembled my husbands cat. There are not limits as to how far Paw Warriors will go to save these fur babies. I’m so glad I found them. Everyone there are true Warriors and I would highly recommend contacting Paw Warriors if you are looking for a fur-ever baby.

We have been going to Paw Warrior Happy hour for about 5 months now. It has been an amazing experience for our family. We even became a foster family for a wonderful kitty from them. The cats love the attention during happy hour and it provides my family an outlet to play and pet a lot of cats.

Poor quality, poor value, disorganized, not professional, not reliable, not responsive, rude, and a FRAUD. THIS PLACE NEEDS TO BE INVESTIGATED AND SHUT DOWN ASAP. I will never donate to Paw Warriors ever again. The animals we saw that the owner, Tracie, posted on FB about (that were supposedly still really sick and "in need of funds") were actually NOT when we saw them (as she made them out to be on FB). Tracie EXAGGERATED on FB about the condition of SEVERAL animals in order to get donations OFF OF THOSE ANIMALS. Tracie also doesn't return calls (or texts). The place is basically a back alley bunch of trailers with a fence around it. And 3/4 of the cats there were sick with runny noses, runny eyes, caked noses - and NO ONE was addressing these many issues. You could also tell the dogs looked like they were just exhausted from being in an outdoor enclosure all day. The cats were all going to the bathroom in the sand where other cats were laying. There were full cat litter boxes everywhere and no water bowls anywhere that we could see. The place was disorganized and no one knew what was going on. When we asked why the litter boxes were full and there was no water, instead of addressing our concerns, or sifting the litter and actually giving the cats water, the staff became rude and nasty. To make matters worse, Tracie is a bully and expects everyone to bow to her. And the worse Tracie can make an animal's situation SEEM (even though it's not true or she exaggerated), the more money she can defraud from well-intentioned people (like us).

This nonprofit is an amazing rescue. They literally drop everything to go and get any cat/kitten they hear is in need of their rescue. They have (and take the time and muscle and money to maintain) a wonderful outdoor/indoor home for kitties. Some will never be adopted, but that is okay. I am lucky to have this rescue close to me. I hope to adopt a kitty (or two) from them once my senior passes to greener pastures.

I took a little rumpy cat to Paw Warriors. Rumpy was missing about 3 " of his spine.His nervous system from the middle of his body down was really impaired. Basicly, his brain was disconnected from his bottom and he did not know when he was peeing and pooping. His rectrum was mostly outside the body and he had poop hanging out of his body. One vet gave him a shot of concerta which shrank the anal tissues and caused the rectrum to go back inside his body. He saw five vets but no one knew what to do with him and they prescribed inappropriate drugs that did not even treat the symptoms. The vets would not neuter him because of all his other problems. So Rumpy's older dominant male brother decided to kill him because he didn't want his testosterone in the house. I was trying to recover from serious surgery and was just a wreck from all the stress in the house and the care of Rumpy and his brother trying to kill him. Tracie took Rumpy in and saved his life and she saved my life. It took me a couple of months to recover from the surgery and the emotional ordeal of Rumpy.
Rumpy lived a few months and then became paralyzed. Then he had to be put to sleep. The vets really should have known that was the only possibility for him. I still grieve for him. But I am grateful that he got the run of Paw Warriors and got to lay in the sunshine for a few months of his little life.

I have 2 rescue cats and feed two stray cats near my house. Paw Warriors were kind enough to lend me two traps for a couple weeks so I could trap the stray cats and get them fixed. They are always rescuing injured kitties and dogs if necessary no matter what time of day or night. They are a wonderful rescue and when I donate I know my money is going to help support the rescue.

My children and I love Paw Warriors. We started going there so the kids could enjoy some outside time and we could pet the cats. We've been visiting for about 2 years, and now are the adopters of 3 Paw Warriors kitties. The kids help out with replenishing food and water and we have turned into a family of advocates for spay/neuter of neighborhood cats in our community. Everyone at Paw Warriors is amazing and I've personally seen some of the critical care cases that they take in. They have so much love in their hearts for each individual cat. They are so welcoming of visitors and they are always striving to educate and give each cat a voice. Our county and those surrounding it are better off because of this organization.

I learned of Paw Warriors a few years ago, shortly after moving to Spring Hill. I had a cat tree that was just too high for my senior kitties. It was a nice one that had many years use ahead of it. I asked a local Facebook group who I could donate it to. Almost every person recommended Paw Warriors! We reached out to Tracie, and she was interested, so we brought it over. I was amazed at the level of care and compassion shown from all the people working there. Since then, I’ve followed their Facebook page and have been increasingly impressed at their dedication and commitment to animals. There are many animal lovers in our world (I am one of them), but we all can’t always do as much as we might like to. The folks at Paw Warriors do a lot every day. They are walking the talk and I admire them for all they do. I also make periodic donations and ALWAYS include them in my prayers.

I appreciate high standards of care as I am a retired nurse. I have been impressed with the standards of care that that the cats and kittens receive. It's all about the animals! Paw Warriors has done amazing work with TNR, getting so many strays fixed, and ear clipped, so they can continue living their lives without producing more unwanted kittens .Our county would be facing a much more dire animal population explosion. Along with TNR, there are some wonderful adoptable cats and kittens.
There are a number of devoted volunteers who make sure the felines get some extra love and attention and help in any areas they are needed.
Until they find their forever home, the cats could not be in a better or more loving environment than Paw Warriors.

We have rescued 3 kitties (Boots and Boogie) from Paw Warriors. The third kitty is Newt . We happened to be outside feeding a colony of cats, when we heard a little meowing. It led us to the neighbors yard behind their shed. She was cornered in and the drop was 8 feet. We called Paw Warriors to help get her out. They came and one of them went down with a net and put her in a carrier. They brought her to a vet and she was 5 months old and weighed only 2 pounds. Paw Warriors gave her shelter and helped her to get better. About 2 weeks with them we adopted her also. So, now we have 3 wonderful kitties. Believe me when I say, Paw Warriors deserves the best for what they do for these animals!

Paw Warriors has helped us in many ways! We had a kitty stuck outside between an 8 ft wall and a kitty corner shed. Paw warriors came as soon as we called and rescued the poor thing and nursed it to health and we adopted her. Also we adopted 2 other kitties from them as well. We had a sick kitty who lived outside and Paw Warriors took him in and made his last days loved and as comfortable as he could be. Paw warriors never ceases to amaze me with their time and effort into loving animals, and spreading the word about TNR. They are the best!
