PLEASE MAKE A NOTE THAT WE WILL NOT ADOPT OUT TO ANYONE WHO WILL DECLAW ANY OF OUR RESCUES. ANY DECLAWED ANIMAL WE HAVE POSTED ON OUR SITE WERE RESCUED DECLAWED ALREADY. RESEARCH SHOWS THAT DECLAWING IS A FORM OF MUTILATION WHICH WE CANNOT AND WILL NOT ALLOW. OUR RESCUES ARE TOO PRECIOUS AND TOO DELICATE TO ALLOW SUCH PAIN TO COME TO THEM. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.
*****PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE ARE NOT A SHELTER AND ALL OUR ANIMALS ARE LOCATED IN FOSTER CARE HOMES THROUGHOUT NJ AND NY. SOME DOGS LISTED ARE ALSO LOCATED AT OUR SISTER FACILITY IN NC. PLEASE READ EACH ANIMALS PROFILE TO FIND OUT THE ANIMALS LOCATION AND THEIR CONTACT FOSTER PARENT's EMAIL ADDRESS!*****
*Samantha has been looking for her forever home for 3 years!! Please let's find this girl a forever home!
My name is Samantha and I was rescued from a very bad hoarding situation 3 years ago. I'm desperately looking for my forever home. Will you help me find it?
Sam has sadly been in foster for 3 years, YES 3 years without a forever home. She has been overlooked because of her color, age and because she's a bit shy. Sam was rescued from a very sad hoarding situation.
Samantha had a pretty tough start. She was living with many other cats who weren't getting the care and attention they needed. Since Samantha's so sweet, she got picked on by the tougher cats so she just quietly sits by, never getting the love that she so richly deserves.
This darling angel is young, only 8 and still has a lot of living and loving to do. She's incredibly gentle and is just waiting for the perfect lap to call her own. She's had to deal with a lot of scary things so a quiet household with only one or a couple of other like-minded cats would be best for her. Samantha is spayed and has had all of her vaccinations and is FIV and Felv negative. Aren't you ready to open your heart and home to this sweet soul?
Transport is available to the right loving home!

Who We Are
Crossed Paws Rescue is a 501 C3 all volunteer animal rescue and adoption organization based in NJ run by Monica Sinforosa and Ilse Singer. We are dedicated to providing humane care and shelter for abandoned, abused and unwanted animals, finding them suitable new homes, and increasing public awareness on the responsibilities of pet ownership throughout the tri state areas. We also work to save the lives of cats and dogs slated for euthanasia at Animal Control facilities and Shelters. We are advocates of TNR and work closely with feral cats. We also help create and manage controlled feral colonies.
CPR operates without a physical facility or paid staff. Our funds come from donations within the rescue community and private individuals. Our animals are in CPR approved foster homes until a suitable adoptive home is found. We use a detailed application and interview process in an effort to make the best match between the animal and an adoptive home. If for some reason the adoptive animal does not work out in their new home, it is required that our animals be returned to us so that we can place them back with their dedicated foster parent/s to ensure they will never wind up abandoned or in the shelter system.
All CPR pets are current with shots, testing; spayed or neutered, if not already and have been thoroughly examined by a vet before being adopted.

PRAYER OF A STRAY
Dear God, Please send me somebody who'll care! I'm tired of Running, I'm sick with despair. My Body is Aching, It's so racked with pain, and Dear God I pray as I run in the rain that someone will love me and give me a home, a wam cozy bed and a big juicy bone. My last owner tied me all day in the yard sometimes with no water and God that was hard. So I chewed my leash God and I ran away to rummage in Garbage and live as a stray. But Now God I'm tired and hungry and cold. and I'm so afraid that I'll never grow old. They chased me with sticks and hit me with stones while I run the streets just looking for bones. I'm not really bad God, Please help if you can, for I have become just a "VICTIM OF MAN!" I'm wormy Dear God and I'm ridden with fleas and all that I want is an owner to please. If you find one for me God, I'll try to be good and I wont chew their shoes, but I'll do as I should. I'll love them, protect them, and try to obey when they tell me to sit, lie down, or to stay! I don't think I'll make it too long on my own, cause I'm getting so weak and I'm so all alone. Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry, cause I'm so afraid God, that I'm going to die. And I've got so much love and devotion to give, that I should be given a new chance to live. So Dear God please, Please answer my prayer and send me somebody who will really care.
DON'T BUY WHILE SHELTER ANIMALS DIE!!!
