Our little Miracle!

Little Phelicia is our little neurological deaf kitten. She was a rescue from a local shelter where her 5 other siblings died from panleukopenia, she was the only survivor. We nursed her around the clock from near death. She has fully recovered from her ordeal and is a real pistol. She continues to learn to compensate for her disabilities and now does some home animal therapy visits with us.

Jiffie is a sweet, active 6 year old looking for her forever home!

Sponsor a Rescue Animal!

Maybe you can't have one of your own, or maybe you have enough all ready...but you can certainly have a cat if we keep it.
Below are some of the animals in our care that have either special needs and require extra treatments or medicines, or some that still have to find their "special" forever homes, and yet others that are semi-ferals "in training" to be good indoor kitties. They will all have a home and all the love they want and need - even if this is their forever home.
With your help we can continue to care for these kitties!

Consider sponsoring one of our rescue animals to help with their daily routine care, veterinary visits, quality nutritional foods, behavioral counseling, a spay or neuter. We will email you information and a photo of an animal in our care that needs you the most.

We are an all-volunteer organization and rely completely upon donations to assist dogs, cats, and ferals. All donations we receive go 100% back to the animals in our care for spay & neuter, medical attention or medicines, food, litter & kitten replacer milk. Donated monies for the ferals go towards their neutering, vaccinations, a ear tipping (for identification purposes) and returned to their colonies for continued feeding, housing and looking after.

Our Fizzies Fund was created in honor and memory of one of our favorite special needs rescue cats "Fizzie".
A fund in her memory will help other animals that have extra ordinary needs or treatments.

We take pride in the fact that we care for our animals on a one on one basis. We are a small network of private volunteer foster homes. Our animals are loved & treated as our own until they find their forever homes, or in the case of our long term fosters, are given the best treatments and care even if it means going into the red to do just that!

It takes a lot time and funds to maintain some of these special needs guys or new comers with debilitating illnesses or injuries.

Some may need to go into emergency services in a moment's notice. Fizzie's Fund will be earmarked for animals with extraordinary medical expenses above and beyond our normal spay/neuter, routine shots, testing, flea treatments, and worming.

Consider donating to the "Fizzie's Fund" as emergency and continual care bills continue to grow and so does our credit card bill. We will always do whatever it takes to get our animals well, ready for placement, or continue to maintain their health and daily requirements.

Some current special needs kitties that would love a Sponsor for their care!
Emily on special food and is given special shots every couple of months due to an extreme allergic skin condition.
Murphy & Morgan have gotten Bladder stones in the past, which had to be removed. In order to help keep them from ever getting them again, we have them on special diet foods to help prevent this.
Tita needs a few different kinds of special meds to help keep her from going into convulsions and for her asthma meds.
Stella, Engee & Dabbles are on a daily heart medicine for her murmur.
CadBerry needs special food for his IBS. (Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome)
Both Nanulk & Pumpkin are each given eye medications daily for, in Pumpkin's case, a dry eye condition and for weepy eyes in Nanuk's case. They both need a shot every so often when their allergies flare up.
Merla is blind and needs daily high blood pressure medicine.
Shot Put has daily meds given for his asthma and a clean air machine was purchased to help him breath better.
Phelicia is on a special diet, and meds to help keep her healthy from a slow failing renal problem.
Peekers is a diabetic and is given insulin twice a day and also on a probiotic script for IBD along with special food.
Mira is incontinent and on special food.

For $25 a month you can:

Sponsor an animal in our carefor one month. Your gift will help us feed and maintain all of their regular daily needs.

Sponsor a feral cat. This will help us spay or neuter a feral and give them their shots or help feed ferals in a TNR'd (Trap-Neuter-Return) colony.

Sponsor a special needs kitty in helping with their daily medications or treatments.

Sponsor an animal that has extraordinary expenses either from a new injured or abused arrival or an emergency from one of our foster kitties.

Foster Parents!

We are always looking for experienced foster parents to help with housing & bottle feeding motherless kittens, taming feral kittens for adoption, housing nursing mom cats, housing special needs kitties and fostering dogs in need.
Due to the unpredictable illnesses a new arrival can bring into a household we are looking for the following:
We are looking for experienced fosters that have a separate room in their home for foster kitties. They have to be kept away from current animals, as we do not want to give your animals anything that the new ones may bring in. If you are considering fostering a dog, the above applies, but also we need a separate yard area for the foster dog to relieve himself or herself. We wouldn't want your current dog(s) to pick up any parasites from feces out in the yard.

If you are interested in helping us do more for the animals, and live in the South Jersey area, please email us at so we may discuss all of our requirements for fostering.

Feral Caretakers!

We are looking for dedicated people to help out with daily or relief feeding, trapping, temporary housing or transportation to & from spay clinics for feral colonies.

There are many colonies in need. We are trying to get as many colonies as possible under a spay/neuter & continued management program. We cannot do so unless we have the people power behind us.

We can greatly reduce the number of kittens born in the wild, & end the needless suffering of the feral felines in our area. Please help us help those who have been forgotten.

Are you working with a feral cat colony in your neighborhood?

Here's a helpful informational link to get you started and on the right track in dealing humanely & responsibly with your colony.

Feral Cat Info from HSUS


We are looking for farms to take responsibility for a few feral cats that are in need of relocation.

All cats are spayed/neutered, wormed & get their rabies and distemper shot before they go to their farm home. They make great mousers, are low maintenance and used to being outside.

All you need is a sheltered area, (barn) where they can be confined for a few weeks to get adjusted to their new surroundings. All they need is dry cat food, fresh water daily and a safe, sheltered area for bad weather. WE WILL LOAN YOU A CRATE, LITTER, BOWLS, AND FOOD for a specified time confinement period. We will deliver and set up the cats for their confinement period and instruct you on their care and release during this period of time. "Best of all, you will be helping to save the lives of these beautiful working cats and share their life with you on your farm!"

Help save a life & give a few cats a job!

Who We Are

Paws for Life Coalition is a N.J. based, 501c3 Non-profit foster home volunteer group, dedicated to reducing the number of unwanted animals on an individual basis.
While in our care, we are committed to providing personal, loving care for abandoned, orphaned, injured and forgotten animals through a small foster network and are a viable and compassionate resource for animals in need.
We find, through adoptions, responsible permanent and loving homes for our companion animals and provide permanent foster care for ones that will never find homes (our special needs critters).
We work with other rescues, shelters, and transports of like mind to help place or transport animals.
Our services include: rescue, foster, rehabilitation, adoption, and animal therapy visitations to area senior centers. Special focus is on developing humane animal education and TNR workshop programs.
We provide information on new or existing spay/neuter programs in our area.

In the past, we were involved in rescuing the abandoned cats and kittens at the Garden State Racetrack in Cherry Hill, that closed in the early 2000's. All the adults were spayed or neutered, given shots, & wormed. Once given a clean bill of health, farms were located for them to live on. All the kittens were socialized and re-homed in permanent loving indoor homes. All cats and kittens were successfully re-homed from the Racetrack and our total number rescued was 92.

We have also been a part of numerous rescues in our area, helping many animals in need.

We appreciate all donations to help us continue with our efforts.
We have many friendly cats and kittens in foster care that are awaiting their forever "indoor" homes only. Check our site for many of these grateful kitties.
Some of the cats, and dogs on our site are up for adoption directly through the independent rescuer or foster who rescued them. Please keep in mind that we do post for individual rescuers and fosters that provide their own screening process, adoption fee and contract. We will post for them as long as their rescued animal is of good temperament, they have had their rescue animal spayed or neutered, have taken care of their medical needs, had their shots, have an adoption fee set and notify us when their rescued animals status has changed. There may be various adoption fees with these postings and at various places. We do not ask for any fee to post for their adoption. We are just happy that they are willing to find a good home and place their own rescue without having to put their rescue animal in a shelter that may euthanize them due to lack of space.
We will supply a general application, and a general adoption contract for those who need one. See section below marked "Important Information - Adoption Forms & Agreements for Caretakers" for general adoption applications and contracts!

Adopting a friend

If you are interested in adopting a cat, kitten, or dog, please contact the appropriate phone number, email address or location for the specific animal you are interested in.

We do not have a public shelter. Most of the animals are in private rescues or foster homes until they are adopted, and some are at a few public locations as stated on a particular animal's description. All animals in foster homes can be seen by appointment only.

We are happy to respond to requests for information on particular animals via email and will provide as much information as we can about personalities and backgrounds of animals in which a potential adopter has interest. Please keep in mind that we do post for individual rescuers and fosters that provide their own screening process and adoption fee. We may not have detailed information on those animals and contact would have to be directed to the particular email or phone number listed under that animal.

Please note: We adopt our animals to people who live within a four county area of Camden County NJ. If you live farther away, we encourage you to visit your local shelter to meet the wonderful animals there who are awaiting homes.

All cats and kittens in private home foster care require an approved application in order to show them.

Our Spay/Neuter & Vaccination Policy

100% of our dogs and cats, while in foster care, are spay or neutered, have all vaccinations (distemper and rabies vaccinations, rabies vaccination if over 12 weeks of age), wormed, flea prevention, testing (FIV/FeLv for a cat and heartworm for a dog), dogs are then placed on heartworm prevention & micro-chipped before going to their forever homes.
All of our kittens are spayed or neutered at 8 weeks old and at least 2 pounds. Our puppies are spayed or neutered at 8 weeks old.

Our Animal Food Bank

We work with area shelters, suppliers and private donors in collecting animal food and various supplies for private caretakers, smaller rescues or rescues in need and disadvantaged people who care for animals. While we cannot always guarantee we will have extra food at all times or particular brands of food, we try our hardest to collect what we can. When we have the food & supplies in storage, transporters are contacted for food or supplies to be distributed.

Over the past few years, we are proud to say that the rescues, rescuers and people who have benefited from our food bank have not only spanned our general area, it has also crossed 4 states (Pa, NJ, NY & Del) & even a couple of food deliveries that went to Canada.

We may sound big, but we are a small-scale volunteer operation & run this program entirely on donated food and supplies. We screen our potential receivers for the greatest need and available transport from our volunteers to an area.

Come Visit Us!

We do not have a public shelter, all of the companion animals listed on our site are either cared for in private foster homes, or at a few public locations as stated on a particular cats description. All animals in foster homes can be seen by appointment only. We also advertise animals for adoption from private rescuers who have their rescues spayed or neutered, have them current on shots, are of good temperament, use an adoption application, have an adoption fee, and use an adoption contract. Please call the number or email address associated with the particular animal you are interested in.

Important Information

Please do not put a "free to good home" ad in the newspaper.

It is important to make you aware that there are unscrupulous people who operate in rings to collect cats, dogs and other animals for the purpose of selling them to labs for research, or selling them for bait in dog fights or as food for other animals. There have also been many cases of people adopting animals for the sole purpose of abuse or for ritual sacrifice. The danger is that these people appear to be animal lovers and can easily fool you, sometimes bringing along children to portray a "perfect family" image.

If you want to find your animal the best home you possibly can, it is important to check all references, including a veterinarian reference, always ask for an adoption fee, and do a home check BEFORE releasing an animal into a stranger's care.

If you do not ask for an adoption fee, then ask for a deposit which will be returned after they show you proof that they have taken the animal to their vet for a check up. Ask for a bare "bones" minimum of $50.00 for an adoption fee or a deposit to help deter people who might otherwise sell an animal for a profit.

We would suggest that when you advertise your animal for adoption that you make a flyer with a clear photo, with a good biography (Animals age, sex, any medical history, things they like to do, any other pertinent information, also any possible restrictions (Example - no children under 10 years old, or not housetrained yet, etc). Be honest with the description, you don't want anyone to be surprised with anything you might not be telling them, they may not tolerate it well.

Place the ad on various bulletin boards in vet offices, kennels, grooming places, training facilities, pet stores & food stores. Place an ad in your local newspapers.

We have included general adoption applications and adoption contracts below to help caretakers place animals in their care. We hope that this will help make your choices easier and more wisely.
Remember your rescue animal's life depends on the decisions you make for them in their placement.

Adoption Forms & Agreements for Caretakers

The following forms are for independent caretakers, & fosters use ONLY. Please do not use the adoption forms below for animals on this site.

Click here for a Cat Adoption Application Form

Click here for a Adoption Contract with spay clause Form (For animals that need to be spayed or neutered)

Click here for a Adoption Contract without spay clause Form (For animals that are already spayed and neutered

We would highly recommend that all animals go to their new home already spayed or neutered. If this is possible, have your dog or cat spayed or neutered before they leave your care.

If you are not able to have them spayed or neutered before adoption, please ask for an additional deposit above your adoption fee, which would be returned upon proof from a veterinarian that this animal was "fixed". You may want to give them a close time frame so that it is done ASAP. Don't risk the possibility that they could have a litter after you adopt them into their new home.
