I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Sweet boy Tommy is so very grateful he was rescued. He was living near a rundown shack where there was glass, rusty nails & crumpled cans from frequent partiers. His guardian angel noticed that he had sustained some injuries so he was quickly taken to the vet. His wounds were cleaned up & from there he went to a foster home, where unexpectedly his health quickly declined. So much so that we weren’t sure he was going to make it. He went back to the vet for further testing & it was found he had tetanus, very rare for a cat to get. But with much love & care, he has bounced back & is ready to be someone’s forever buddy. It’s very possible he belonged to someone at some point, as he is so sweet & just wants to give love. This baby deserves nothing but the best from now on. He has a friend that he has bonded with, Angel, the calico posted here. It would be so great if he could share a forever home with her. Anyone got room for two best buddies??
Rescue Group Info...
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!!
