This is a fantastic rescue society. I was first in touch with them after I'd rescued 3 kittens from a local parking lot. I needed help getting them adopted, and KCZD came to the rescue. They have great adoption days at PetSmart and were helpful, supportive, and flexible while working with me to get the little guys home. They offered their full support to help me through fostering the kittens. I was immediately impressed with the care that they give the cats. I think that stands out to me the most, followed closely by the dedication of the Director and volunteers. The cats were fed high-quality food, and filtered water. If requiring daily "poop" reports doesn't tell you how dedicated the director is - I don't know what will. They are played with multiple times a day, brushed, given cuddles, and helped to improve their adoptability. I was told that no cat is ever given up on here - they stay until we find them a home. I was so impressed with it all - I became a volunteer! Donate to them, adopt through them, or just spread the word to others who may be looking for a new furry friend. This is a well-run organization with high standards. You won't be disappointed.
Volunteering with Karma Cat + Zen Dog feels more like a group of friends united for a cause than a network of volunteers.
Someone is always willing to lend a hand, no matter what the task is. I've only officially been with the group for a little over a year and it feels like I've known these people most of my life. If you're looking to volunteer with a group of happy, friendly people then you found the right rescue!
Karma Cat + Zen Dog Rescue is hands down the best rescue in central New Jersey, and possibly the country! We work as a family to save the lives of cats and dogs. The diversity of our volunteers is one of our strengths, and we use our various talents to fundraise for, foster, clean, and socialize our animals. I have truly found a missing piece with this organization, and I'm thankfully for my inclusion in the family!
Fantastic place filled with wonderful people. They work tirelessly to help rescue kitties find their forever homes.
I love this group! They are both caring and responsible. I have both volunteered and adopted from them.
What an amazing organization.
I first learned of them a few years ago when I adopted one of the beautiful cats they were caring for. Well about a year later we adopted another and he wasn't quite fitting in. I reached out to them and they spent months trying to help my new addition fit in with no avail so they helped me find him a new home. Well after that instead of adopting again I knew I wanted to help them. So I applied to volunteer. I'm so glad I did. The people involved are amazing!!! The care they provide for the animals is above and beyond what you would expect. There is daily communication between the volunteers. The fosters take such amazing care of the new kittens socializing them, getting them proper medical care. I could go on and on. KCZD rescue society really is one big family of two and four legged beings.
I have been a Veterinary Technician for over 20 years. I have "worked" with many rescues as they came through the places I worked at. Never did I actually volunteer with any group before. 2 years ago I started working with KarmaCat and im grateful I found such a fantastic group to work with. I started fostering, which has brought me so much joy with all "my" kitties that found homes. I have just started volunteering with adoption days and now have gotten my kids involved as junior socializers. They love and it and it helps them to learn about different people and animals. And helps mold them into better people. You just have to look at what a great family this group is, everyone is a terrific role model!! Never would I not work with this family/group!! Ohana!!!!!
I have always loved animals and was looking for a way to get involved and make a difference. I came across Karma Cat & Zen Dog on Volunteer Match and started volunteering here doing cat socialization. I look forward to seeing and playing with the cats, and I love knowing I'm making a difference keeping the cats used to human contact and increasing their chances of finding good homes. Everyone that works here is passionate about animals and the leadership is outstanding. It only took me a few weeks here to take home a kitten that I absolutely love. Karma Cat is big on social media and it's so rewarding hearing when the cats get adopted!
Karma Cat & Zen dog is run and supported by a wonderful group of individuals that follow a loving and immaculate standard of care for the kitties and dog's in the group. There is a wealth of knowledge, experience, and care that goes in to taking care of the animals that are rescued, and it shows! The goal is to provide the best care, while finding the most fitting forever home. The volunteers spend countless hours cleaning and caring for the adoptable pets, and so know what type of forever family will be the best for each animal. I love this group, and am a proud volunteer and adopter.
I adopted a cat from this group 4 years ago with no issues. I have been a volunteer for 8 months and have had a blast. Christie the director bursts with energy and care for the animals. The training is thorough for volunteers and communication is frequent. Everyone works together for the animals. New ideas are encouraged. Nothing is ever forced upon us. Scheduling of volunteering is detailed and questions are always answered quickly.
A wonderful family group!
