Purebred or Rescue?
Why Hidden Paw?

 
The Hidden Paw Cat Club mission is to promote the education, knowledge and interest in all domesticated purebred and non-purebred cats in the general public. This includes encouraging spaying and neutering, recognizing animal abuse, encouraging participation in local animal shelter and rescue groups and showing purebred and non-purebred cats.

The Hidden Paw Cat Club encourage adopting cats and kittens from your local shelters and rescue groups. However, if you would prefer to have a purebred cat due to a desire for a particular predictable physical or personality characteristic, we advise you to buy from a reputable breeder rather than a pet shop or “kitten mill”. For more information on buying from a breeder please see out Buying From a Breeder page.

We believe that the very important issue of the welfare of all cats is better served by programs to educate the public and to neuter and spay pet cats rather than by legislation designed to restrict ownership.
