I would give this organization 100 stars if I could. They are the most amazing, loving, kind hearted group of people I have ever met. A cat I had adopted through them a few years ago developed a health problem, and I was very distraught. I turned to PAWS for guidance on what to do and they immediately came to our aid. With their assistance I now have my pet back home with me healthy and happy. They literally saved his life. I truly believe had it not been for their help he would not be alive today. I will forever be indebted to them, and plan to donate my time in the future. If you are considering donating time or money I would highly recommend this non-profit. They are Angels on Earth and well deserving of your support.
I have been a volunteer with PAWS since 2001. In that time I cannot the number of animals we have helped as well as the wonderful people we have met and helped along the way!!
I have been volunteering with PAWS since 2001; in that time, we have helped countless animals find loving homes; PAWS helps animals that many people turn their back on; we have also spent a lot of time helping the community to help them keep their own animals, to rehome animals when needed and to educated the community at large about animals and animal related issues. We are a very dedicated group who spends countless hours helping homeless animals. We also form lasting relationships with our adopters helping them even after they adopt and being available for questions or concerns. We have made a lot of friends though PAWS. They are a wonderful, caring group of volunteers!
We fostered 10 dogs with PAWS, what a great group! They really love these animals and are very careful in their selection of forever homes!! Can't say enough great things!!!
My husband and I adopted a doll of a puppy from PAWS of Montclair, his name is Noah. We have had him now for 6 weeks and couldn't be any happier with him. PAWS is a great organization to deal with!!!!!
This organization is run by a group of experienced and dedicated volunteers, working hard to match people with animals best suited for them. Proud I can assist.
This is a wonderful rescue to foster for- not only because of the lives of the animals they save and carefully place into loving homes but also because of the support they provide for the volunteers who foster. They want the very best for these animals in every way-from providing the BEST veterinary care before adoption to matching up the dogs correctly with potential adopters so it's a win-win for all! It's a sincere pleasure to foster for such a great rescue organization. They have the dog's true interest at heart always!
I am a volunteer and board member of PAWS Montclair, and I am grateful that we can continue our mission of saving and helping abandoned animals in need. PAWS has been active in the community for almost 40 years! We often take animals that other rescues -- the older dogs and cats, those that need special medical care -- but we know there is a home out there for these animals. Many of our adopters stay in touch with us over the years. We are lucky to have a core group of volunteers and foster homes who are always there to help when needed.
I adopted my first PAWS cats in 1989 and have been involved ever since. This group is so dedicated and passionate about helping animals, and its mission remains to rescue, shelter, vet, and find great new homes for those animals who are abandoned and homeless. Aside from my duties of President of the Board, I manage the dog-side of our rescue, networking with other rescues, pulling dogs from death row at high kill facilities, sheltering and getting them to the vet, and preparing them for their new forever homes. We spend countless hours in many capacities -- hands on with the dogs, working with the trainer, meeting potential adopters, attending adoption events, screening every applicant and doing home visits to be sure our dogs find the home that best suits their needs. We also reach out to the community, helping with all types of dog-related issues, presenting to schools and other groups interested in our mission. There is no better feeling to us than when we leave the new adoptive home after the final home visit, as we know this dog, once marked for death at another facility, will live out his or her years with a loving family. Our cat group works very hard to do the same for the many cats and kittens they rescue and rehome, and they are at adoption events every weekend at several venues, and they are always answering calls, emails, and helping people wherever they can. I am proud of all the PAWS volunteers and board members all we have accomplished as a group, and I am very grateful to our supporters!
i am a volunteer for Pound animal Welfare Society of Montclair. I have volunteered for many non Profit Animal rescues in the past. What makes PAWS Of Montclair Special to me is that when I pick up there dogs at the meeting spots to pick up the rescued PAWS has pulled from these High Kill Shelters, they are dogs that have been overlooked because of there age, breed, looks, medical attention they might or will need etc. They are truly a great organization!! I see other rescue's there picking up puppies (very easily adopted by others because they are puppies) small breed dogs , young healthy dogs etc. PAWS rescues the old, the sick, large dogs pretty much a dog that others consider "non Adoptable" and gives these dogs a chance, where they do everything humanly possible to get the "throw aways" Non adoptables a good loving home something these dogs have never seen a good life they deserve. They go that extra mile for each and every dog in there care.
We adopted our pup Lacie from Pound Animal Welfare and they are a wonderful rescue. They saved my pups mom when she was pregnant and to be euthanized. We are so grateful for everyone at PAWS. We would definitely consider adopting from them again in the future.
We adopted our American Staffordshire mix pup from this non-profit animal shelter group. The group is filled with amazing people that care for animals. I'm so glad I found them on Petfinder.com. Our dog Lacie is an angel and we wouldn't trade her for the world.
i have fostered dogs, adopted dogs, and worked with PAWS rescue group for years as a dog trainer/behavioral consultant, and from my experience, they are one of the VERY BEST rescues out there!
PAWS rescue group takes dogs that no one else takes from high kill shelters and from other rescue groups. They go above and beyond to make sure that they do the work necessary to get their dogs adoptable. i work with PAWS evaluating their dogs and working with any issues their dogs may have. i also do home visits and settle in sessions upon adoption. this alone has saved many adoptions! and if, for any reason, PAWS needs to take a dog back into their rescue, they do so quickly and without drama. they are wonderful and work with their foster families, giving their foster families as well as their foster dogs everything they need to be successful, happy and healthy. PAWS also works with the community, helping pet owners in need keep their beloved pets with them.
