If you care about cats (and their humans) you should know about CPAW NJ

CPAW NJ In The Community

We offer workshops and participate in community events to promote awareness of ways to reduce the community cat population and reduce shelter intake.  We provide information on low cost spay/neuter, how to help stabilize the outdoor cat population through trap, neuter, vaccinate, return (TNVR), where you can donate pet food, and talk about ways community members and businesses can get involved.

Surrender Prevention

We provide free counseling for behavior issues, food assistance, and other support to prevent surrenders and help people rehome their pets.
