About Our Rescue Group:

Barrington PAW was incorporated in 2007 in order to save the lives of stray animals in the town of Barrington. Prior to the formation of Barrington PAW the majority of found animals that were unclaimed by owners after 5 days were euthanized, however now ALL animals have a chance at a wonderful life in a new home. By adopting an animal through Barrington PAW you will help us to help save more animals in town. Barrington PAW is an all volunteer organization that is completely dependent upon private donations to fund its operation. We are a 501c3 organization and as such all donations are fully tax deductible. Visit our website at

Come Meet our Pets:

All animals may be visited by appointment. Barrington does not have a shelter location - animals are housed at the Warren Animal Hospital on Metacom Ave in Warren and in some cases in foster homes. Appointments to meet our animals will be scheduled at your convenience.

Our Adoption Process:

There is an application process for all adoptions which includes verification of residency, proof of ability to have pets for renters, and a vet check. Tax deductible adoption donation required. All animals have all age appropriate vaccinations, have been tested for FeLV/FIV and are spayed/ neutered prior to adoption. Reduced cost microchipping also available.

Munchkin is a naturally occurring, domestic cat breed characterized by unusually short legs. These short-legged cats have been documented in 1930s in England. But World War II took its toll on the cat and threatened the extinction of this species. These cats were rediscovered in Europe in 1980s. Breeders undertook measures to conserve this breed and since then this breed has flourished. Recently it has been accepted as breed by TICA. "

Just because it is a natural mutation does not make it okay. If a human was born with no limbs, is it natural? Of course. But it is still…

Many of the things you are calling "deformed" are harmless, natural mutations. The Manx cat is a naturally occurring breed from the Isle of Man. Spynx and Peterbalds are also naturally occurring - and harmless. The Spynx, other than being cold, is a very hardy cat. The Scottish fold is another naturally occurring mutation - as is the long haired gene! These breeds you site are not unhealthy, so you're really misinformed. They carry no higher risk of illness than any other breed or domestic short hair. What does a folded ear, for instance, have to do with healthy kidneys, or…
