Facts about Max

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Hi, my name is Max! I showed up in my caregiver's backyard this past spring. This nice caregiver feeds me & has given me shelter. She even had the vet man give me my neuter surgery & some shots. They believe I am 4-6 years old & I'm told I am very friendly & laid back, but can be a playful boy too once I warm up to you (watch my video). I'm even starting to like sitting in a lap & I seem to do well around other laid back cats & dogs. I still need to be FIV/FeLV tested, but my caregiver will take me in for testing once there is a serious potential adopter. My caregiver says that I can only go to a special & approved home. Could you be just that perfect & special person/home for me? Please e-mail my caregiver at & tell her a little bit about yourself. I hope to meet my forever person soon!!!

About Paws4Life, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Paws4Life, Inc. was established primarily to help care for homeless, abandoned, stray, & feral cats in Union County, NC.

Our county shelter's kill rate is currently 78% (over 90% for cats). Without TNR, stray & feral cats will continue to reproduce & continue adding to the overpopulation & high kill rate. Too often & too quickly animals that once had a home are abandoned for numerous reasons & le...ft to fend for themselves, opening their lives up to many new & unfamiliar challenges with the previous owners "hope" that they can make it on their own. I currently care for 4 homeless cats on a regular basis with a few others that "appear" from time to time. The 4 regulars have been spayed/neutered & should anymore come around regularly, they will be altered as well. They also are fed daily, have basic shelter from the elements & are given medical attention if needed. There were originally 6 regulars but recently we had to find one of them a home due to him developing allergies, & then one went missing for 2 weeks & upon return was limping. It was determined by the vet that she had been shot & sustained nerve damage to her leg.

Paws4Life, Inc. would like to encourage & be able to assist others with TNR missions & possibly start a program in the community that would assist other feral colony caregivers with the basics of caring for their homeless colonies.

Often times there are pleas either through e-mail or Facebook posts for financial help with urgent animal abuse/neglect cases or for assistance with transport of an animal being adopted. Paws4Life would like to contribute towards such situations if there comes a time when that is financially possible.

By example & through outreach, Paws4Life, Inc. hopes to educate more people in the local community about the responsibility of animal ownership & the importance of spaying/neutering. So often people just "didn't know" & if they can be taught & are willing to learn, not only does it benefit them but the community as well & ultimately, the animals. I 'didn't know' about the high-kill rate in our county's shelter until I asked. Maybe if more people knew the facts, more people would be motivated to work towards change.

ALL animals deserve the chance to live out their lives & I believe it is our responsibility, as the more intelligent species, to have regard for those lives. It is my hope, my wish, that more compassion & regard would be given to the lives of those who depend on us; That more people would stop & just "pause for life"!!

Amor conquista todo!!
