About Us

Tiny Paws and Whiskers™ is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization founded by friends and fosters Sherrie Dennehy and Teresa Ramos based in Orange County, CA, serving Orange County, Los Angeles, and the Inland Empire.


With millions of cats living on the streets in the United States, and shelters overrun with high cat populations, hundreds of thousands of kittens are born each year with no safe place to call home. According to the Humane Society, up to 75% may die.


TPW's mission is to:

  • Improve the health and survival rate of orphaned kittens through careful and skilled fostering,

  • Aid in the reduction of the community cat population by ensuring that all cats coming through our rescue are spayed/neutered,

  • Help reduce the spread of feline diseases such as FIV, FeLV, and other transmittable diseases through vaccination and testing, and encouraging all cat owners to keep cats indoors, and

  • Bring rescued cats together with their forever families to live happy, healthy and long lives!
