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.

*Nicholas, Our handsome boy needs your love!!
EMAIL MONICA AT ENLIGHTENED34@AOL.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION OR IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING NIKKI!
Hi Everyone, my name is Nikki, short for Nicholas and I have not had the easiest life though through all of it, I am the sweetest, loving boy you'll ever meet. I have been searching for my forever home for a long time now and can't figure out why no one wants me. If you would give me a chance I will show you just how much love I have to give.
Nikki is just handsome, he's sweet and also a lover-boy! He didn't get a whole lot of love, or much of anything else in the house he was rescued from so he figures he's way overdue. He loves other cats and he will love you too! Whether it's on your lap or in a snuggly bed with the other cats of the household, Nikki just wants to love and be loved.
Nikki is still quite young, only about 5, so you and he can look forward to a long, happy life together. He's been neutered, vaccinated and tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia. Won't you please make this wonderful fellow a part of your family?
Transport is available to the right loving home!
Adoption applications are required as well as a home visit to ensure the safety of this Awesome boy!!
SAMANTHA - THE MOST GENTLE SOUL YOU WILL EVER MEET!
Hi, My name is Sam, short for Samantha! I've been looking for my forever home for almost 2 years now. I'm lonely and sad because I don't understand why I keep getting passed by. Can you please help me find a forever place to call my home?
Can You Make Samantha Feel Special?
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 5 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?
EMAIL MONICA DIRECTLY AT ENLIGHTENED34@AOL.COM TO ADOPT THIS SWEET GIRL!

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.
