Shelter Cats!

Photobucket here (

I got picked to take the pictures of my shelters cats and kittens for them to go onto!
Tessie. Someone left her out in the cold so long her ears got frost bite :( She was one of my favourites though.

More photos on the photobucket account I linked too.. their names are under 'file name'.

Here is my shelters petfinder page:

On their website.

I took almost 40 pictures of individual cats total, taking almost 2 hours. Cats do not cooperate when you want to take their pictures! :laughing:

Great Job Kathryn :thumbs up

Might I suggest putting a different pic of Shadow on the site though, he doesn't look too happy/friendly in that one :o I know it can be hard to get good pic of black cats especially when stressed but Shadow needs his best paw forward :D

:fingerscr for all the kitties to get the purrfect furrever homes :goodvibes:

Shadow was soooo handsome, but he was really depressed. I'm not sure why, because the shelter is a very good no kill shelter, and all the other animals there are very happy, but he must have had something bad happen to him before.. I didn't read his kennel card to see why he was brought in.

I told the lady who I was talking to over email and who asked me to do this that some of them are not as good as the others.. I might end up retaking a few.. probably need to re-take Lings. She was this pretty Siamese kitty but she had a cone on her head. She had just gotten spayed so it seems like she tried to rip out her stitches.

There was a black cat that had been there since March that was soooooooo darn cute and I wanted to take it.

The best one was this other cat's reason for being brought into the shelter...
'BITE CASE'. My mom was like who the heck brings a cat in for that? So the kitty kept rolling around and being so cute... my mom reached up to pet her and sure enough the cat bit her finger :laughing: It wasn't even a mean bite.. it was an I LOVE YOU bite. Previous owners must have been idiots to not realize the difference between a love bite and a viscous bite. :wall:

Shelter Partnering
By coordinating with other shelters and rescues through our Shelter Partnering Program, AWA is able to assist many animals from overcrowded shelters who otherwise were destined to be euthanized due to lack of space. Shelters with animal control contracts are required to accept incoming animals regardless of the space available. When they do run out of space, they are faced with the unfortunate task of euthanizing healthy animals to make room. Assisting animals from these shelters has a two fold benefit. Animals are saved from an early and unnecessary demise and caring, hardworking shelter employees are spared the barbaric job of killing healthy animals.

Phone Number is:856-424-2288 OR

The shelter is located at:
Animal Welfare Association
509 Centennial Boulevard
Voorhees, NJ 08043

They will likely say yes if you ask. You will likely have to arrange the transportation though. We mostly take in animals from Philadelphia, but one of my favourite dogs came all the way from North Carolina.

And 'Lisa Ross' is generally incharge of intakes @ ext. 102

don't need to list me as a reference or anything though, just say someone told you that this was the shelter to call.

hope that helps.
