Pet of the Week

About Me:

“My name is Baby Princess and I’m a 17+ year old Ragdoll mix. When I first came to LAWS, I was not in the best shape. I had a lot of mats all over me, and was suffering from a horribly upset tummy.   I was also very thin.  I had multiple tests done to determine why I was having this tummy issue, but all results came back negative.  I was started on medication, which did have a significant impact, but I still do have loose stool every once in a while.  I am also on a RAW diet. 

Although I am a classified as a ‘Senior”, I can run and jump and am very agile!!  I love to chat, and will follow you around meowing!!  I love a good head scratch, and love to sleep/relax.  I would love a nice warm lap to snuggle on – could it be yours???”


*I am looking for a loving long term foster home to live out my retirement.


*Foster home – where LAWS will pay for any medical needs, medicine etc.

A Big Thanks!

The staff from PET VALU, BOBCAYGEON had a donation drive for LAWS at their store. Today, they arrived with a car load of donations, including litter, dry cat and dog food, bowls, puppy pads, wet cat and dog food etc. We are lucky to have such great support from our surrounding businesses and community.

Thanks again PET VALU, Bobcaygeon!!!!

Currently LAWS has a large number of kittens and adults on-site that have specific diet requirements. If our friends and supporters could possibly manage, we are in dire need of GRAIN-FREE CANNED CAT FOOD donations.
Thank you in advance from our furry friends at LAWS.

As many of you know LAWS  relies solely on donations.  We are very thankful for eveyone who helps by donation money, time or much needed items!


As we all know life can be busy, and finding the time to drive up to the shelter with your wonderful donations during our open hours can be abit tricky. has wonderful feature called a Wish List!  We set one up!  There are many day to day items listed, as well as food and toys.

When you order from Amazon, the items ship right to the shelter!  We have received a few boxes already and love the surprise!

Of course, once the box is empty, the cats and kittens LOVE the empty boxes!!!!


It is super easy to do.  Go to ,  There is a link for Wish List, select Find a Wish List, and type in "Lakefield Animal Welfare Society"!

Thank you to everyone!
