Naomi and Animals Ca't Talk continue to be top notch professionals. Yesterday we found a small kitten in our crawlspace. Husband & I stayed up all night trying to bring it around. Today I contacted Naomi to see if she had a volunteer to feed the kitten since Husband ad I both work full-time and neither of us could take the kitten to work. We are so blessed to have Naomi and volunteers helping give innocent animals a fighting chance. Also, special thanks to our Vet, Creature Comforts who do an excellent job at caring for all types of pets.

I had adopted a young male cat in 2010. He was wonderful and we loved him so very much. This past Oct my asthma became worse and I found that my loving cat was having an affect with my health. I contacted Naomi who was so understanding and agreed that she would take him back. After a few days of many tears we brought him to the vet that Naomi uses. They were so understanding as it was so very hard for me to say good-bye to him. It still is very hard and I still miss him so very much. Naomi was so wonderful with feedback on him and let me know that he had been adopted by a loving family. This organization is a caring, loving place. They go way above to care for these pets. I pray everyday for Naomi and her group.

Replying to the review by Cassie Watton. I searched our records, no one by that name adopted from us. All our animals are tested, spayed/neutered and vaccinated prior to adoption. I contacted my vet about this review. I was told the disease she complained about was transmitted by fleas. What was needed was to treat the cat for fleas and rid the home of fleas and medicate the cat and it will not be a recurring problem.

This is in response to aadkins review. Had the cat not been spayed that she adopted over a year ago would she not have heard her in heat? My vet is Creature Comforts in Saylorsburg and they confirmed to her that the cat was spayed. I will not pay for an unspayed cat that she has that she cannot afford to spay. Creature Comforts and PetSmart can vouch that all my cats are spayed/neutered before adoption. One slipped thru the crack and the very next day I called the adoptive parents and they took the cat to Creature Comforts and had it spayed under my account

I love my two cats that I have gotten from them however they have become two of the most expensive cats I have ever owned. They are both strictly indoor cats and both were tested with an extreme strong positive of having bartonella (cat scratch fever) my vet has told me how highly contagious this is and now have to get everyone in the house tested including the humans... being that these cats were at the shelter I advise anyone who has bought a cat from them in the last 4 years to get them tested. This can be very deadly to your cat and even you! In response this would be my nick name and married name so you would not find a Cassie Watton in your records. These cats have never had fleas in my care. Also having two other cats and a dog my vet who has dealt closely with the disease has said every animal must be tested as it can be transmitted by scratches even to other cats and this obviously is not a disease you test for since it is not something most vets test for.

every year i go up to PA to use my fathers time share (i'm 30yrs old) around thanksgiving time. Last year, my girlfriend and I decided to stop by a PetSmart location to see if they had cats to adopt (my girlfriend has 2 and i wanted to adopt). The absolute second i saw this 5 month old kitten i fell in love. After filling out the paper work; i returned the next night to meet Cheryl. She was the nicest woman in answering all of my questions, helped me purchase the proper items and screening me and my living situation in order to make sure the kitten i wanted to adopt would be comfortable. It is now 1 year later and (lakeland was her name previously) Zorra loves her home and i absolutely love her. This organization not only saved a kittens life, but has brought so much joy to my life. I cant thank Cheryl and this organization more.

I found a stray cat and no one would help me but Naomi, she told me to take the cat to Creature Comforts and I did. She helped me when my little girl Willow was sick she is fine now thanks to Naomi. She will help out in any way she can, she is a great person and will always care for the cats and kittens. The cats and kittens are all loveable and just need a good home to be loved in. I wish more people would know how much ACT cares for the cats and what they do.

I've been volunteering with ACT since June 2012 and have been coming in pretty much every Saturday. It's a very enjoyable time to be able to work with the cats as they all are full of unique personalities and it's great to be able to get to know them all. Naomi truly cares for these cats and does all she can for them. Even as a small organization, this place really made an impact on me. It just saddens me that we are often overlooked in comparison to the larger shelters like AWSOM.

This is a marvellous small rescue organization. No one is put down. Tough cases are not turned away. Naomi is a dedicated, caring, feeling, warm human being who loves animals. She was my biggest rock and support when my cat, Tigger got loose for six days. (He was found unharmed.) The money is used for the animals. I think that "Animals Can't Talk Rescue and Adoption, Inc." is the best!

Naomi has given up everything for homeless, abandoned, sick and feral cats in the Stroudsburg area. She takes them in, Vets them, cares for them and gets them ready for adoption at PetSmart. I have started volunteering there on Sundays and I can see all the hard work involved and how well cared for these cats are.

Thank God for Naomi & her complete devotion to the cats & cat crisis of the Pocono area & beyond! She has helped me with kitty situations, provided education & management of feral cat colonies, & maintains the amazing cats for adoption at our Stroud Township Pet Smart. If she has ever turned you down for an adoption, & she does turn many away, please come away not with hatred or disappointment, but with a greater understanding of her mission. I have a small herd of 7- even I would be turned down! If you love cats, or at very least understand & respect those who make sacrifices for any animal- find ways, even the smallest donation of time, money, supplies, or promotion of awareness, to encourage these humanitarians such as Naomi to continue their mission. One of the finest expressions of humanity is how society treats and manages the animals in their care.
