NEWS: We are not able to accept any animals right now. Please try your local rescues, pet stores, and vet offices.

​About Us

Crazy's Claws N' Paws is a 501(c)3 non-profit, no-kill, volunteer, foster, and donation based animal rescue/shelter founded in June 2013. We are temporarily located in foster homes and are only available by appointment. We serve Wayne, Johnston, Lenoir, and Wilson counties in North Carolina. We recently expanded to Sarasota, Florida and surrounding areas.


Each animal will go to its new home with current shots, be neutered or spayed, FelV/FIV test(cats), heartworm test and treated if positive/prevention if negative(dogs), microchip, topical flea/tick prevention, wellness exam, fecal exam, dewormed, and whatever else is necessary. Please read the requirements carefully for adopting one of our Furry Friends here. We want to make the best matches for you and our furry friends. Gift cards, supplies, and volunteer time are always accepted with heart-felt thank-you's. Have a question? Feel free to contact us!

Pet of the Month



I'm a very shy, older female. I was trapped as a kitten, spayed, and somewhat tamed. I'm afraid of new people and places, but give me a month and i should warm up and want all your attention and love. I'll even sleep with you! I need a human that will give me the time and patience for me to learn. I'm okay with other animals. Little, tiny humans are scary, but I might can adjust. I just really want a home of my own.
