Precious Paws Cat Rescue at a Glance

Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire

Precious Paws Cat Rescue knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Our Animal Rescue Service realised that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch Precious Paws Cat Rescue in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire, run by Jacqui Schafer


A Guide To Our Process For Adopting A Cat Or Kitten

Complete our Homing Form and Data Form return them to us by email.

We will look at the forms to see if you are suitable for the cats/kittens you may have named or we will match you with any cats/kittens we have suitable and available at that time. We will not rehome cats/kittens near to the location they were found. This puts them at risk of returning to the streets or their previous owner.

We will send you an email naming the cat(s) and brief details.  Once a decision is made on what cat(s)/kittens you are happy to proceed with we will ask that you pay a holding/reservation donation of £20 per cat to secure them whilst we continue the process as below.  If for whatever reason you fail we would refund this if you request it.

We will then request the home photos or video.  This is in place of the home visit due to covid-19 they were done in this way to comply with DEFRA guidelines.  With online mapping this has worked well for both us and the prospective adopter.  We have made the decision to continue in this way moving forward.

When we have received your photos/videos back by email we will make a decision.  We will notify you by email if successful or not and will give you the proposed date for the meet and greet/adoption to take place.

Once we receive your reply confirming that this is suitable or not, a confirmation email will be sent with information about the cat(s) and a time of appointment as we work on an appointment-only basis.

You will arrive on the planned day and time to meet and greet your cat(s) or kitten(s).  You will then complete the adoption process with Jacqui.

Unfortunately we are not a re homing centre we are predominately a private boarding cattery.  Having people walking around is not in the cats welfare it stresses the cats/kittens and we quite often have our rescue cats in foster homes.  We often have feral mums and babies or feral cats waiting to be neutered.  We therefore arrange the whole meet/greet/adopt on the same day. We want you to be happy with the choice as well as we want to be happy in the same way so if the cat you meet is not the right one(s) for you thats fine we continue to process (choosing arranging another date)  Any money paid will be transferred to next cat or refunded as long as it wasn’t a non refundable deposit.

Any questions are welcomed by email at any time during or after the adoption.



Note on neutering that we as a rescue insist it is completed if not done it will be at your expense.

Included in all Adoptions


Worming Treatment up to date

Flea Treatment up to date.

Complete Health check by our vet

1st vaccination

Any treatment needed up to the time of adoption.  (Rescuing cats and kittens there are often costly complications involved).

We do insist on our adoption agreement that all cats are neutered.  We do our best to assist with this but sometimes we cannot do it for numerous reasons.  e.g kittens are too young, not a certain weight, funds or vets advice, This expense would be down to adopter if not done by the time of the adoption as is the 2nd vaccination.  

Fleurs Babies


See below ways you can help us.

We need funds to be able to do what we do.  We do appreciate times are extremely tough at the moment but people are abandoning cats or seeking rescue space to re-home their pet (we are having to turn these away currently as are many rescues).  Without the funds we can not fill spaces as they become available.  Our funds are very very low.
