I have long known several people associated with PAWS Montclair and never cease being impressed by their boundless dedication and caring for animals that are in need of a home. I just fostered, and then adopted, two wonderful sister kittens, Iris and Ivy, from PAWS. Everyone I dealt with, especially Val and Kristina, were extremely generous and accommodating with their time, advice, and help. All the volunteers I had contact with genuinely cared about the welfare of their animals. PAWS stands out as it is a no-kill shelter and relies entirely on donations! Iris and Ivy are extremely socialized (PAWS' effort) and have brought a tremendous amount of joy into my home!

These guys are the best. Their facility is clean and organized. If you find I stray they don't turn you away. They actually help you with finding a place. I have 4 PAWS cats. They do their homework and check up on the dog or cat they adopted out because they really do care. This place rocks.

I started volunteering for PAWS in 2001. I walked dogs and helped socialize cats. Mushy was the my first success story. She was adopted but her owner was unable to keep her so she came back to PAWS. When we could not get her a new home, I adopted her. When she came to PAWS, you could not pet her. Now she is a total lap cat. PAWS volunteers have helped many cats like Mushy learn to trust people and eventually find a home. I have 3 cats that I adopted from PAWS. Now I help with cat adoptions on Saturdays at Petco. I help at the bazaar, the yard sales and with different fundraisers. I enjoy volunteering with PAWS as I have had the opportunity to help many dogs and cats who just want to be loved and to give love in return. When you adopt a homeless cat or dog, you are the biggest winner.

I started volunteering, wrapping gifts at Barnes & Noble, for PAWS in 2001 and volunteered at the Holiday Bazaar the same year. Then I started walking dogs on the weekends and I noticed how many animals were being adopted. The staff and volunteers were great with the animals and the people that came in. I also noticed that PAWS was open 365 days a year! I thought, that is dedication!!! I began working part time as the receptionist in Nov. 2004 - Dec. 31, 2008 when PAWS relocated. So many volunteers are there much longer than I am. Many times I was there after closing because someone wanted to see an animal and was coming after work. So many PAWS animals have gotten new homes with people who love and care for them. I've been co-chairperson for the Holiday Bazaar for the last 10 years and I've organized the PAWS yard sale for the last several years. What a wonderful organization to be a part of. My fantastic dog, Angelo, was adopted from PAWS 9 years ago!

I adopted 2 wonderful companions from PAWS in 2003 and joined the board in 2011. PAWS is a volunteer organization and it amazes me how tirelessly they work, giving of their own time and money. PAWS operates on a shoe-string budget, yet remains dedicated to its mission of helping at-risk dogs and cats regardless of breed or age, and trying to "strike at the root" of problems by supporting spay/neuter and humane education.

PAWS gives countless animals - many at risk from kill shelters or other difficult situations - a chance for a good life.

As a volunteer, I continue to assist with PAWS website and internet presence. Over the past year + since my last review, I continue to be impressed and thankful to all the hard work and successes by PAWS members and their supporters. They've found many homes for so many cats and dogs, and created happy endings where there would have been none.

I am proud to assist in this small way to promote this organization's hard work.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

It helped me know that were happy outcomes for many animals.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Like contributed a small part tho the bigger picture.

I have been a volunteer with PAWS since 2001 and in that time, the number of animals we have rescued and rehomed is amazing; We continue to do this work every day and we are lucky to meet so many wonderful people that help us do this work; Without the fosters, supporters and adopters, we could never do this work!

I first started volunteering for PAWS in 2001; mainly outside events, like the holiday bazaar and wrapping for Barnes and Nobles- then in 2003 I found a stray and brought him to PAWS; I started working part time at the shelter in February of 2004 and continued through until Dec 31st, 2008, when we moved. I am now a volunteer who assists in all aspects of kitten/cat adoptions. I am very dedicated to PAWS and helping the animals of the world. The people I have met through PAWS, the adopters and the pets I have been able to rescue because of PAWS has been amazing. Dr Cameron and his staff help us to do the work that we do, without him, we would not be able to do this! So many animals are better off because of the work we do at PAWS!

My second cat upon moving to Montclair was a darling little kitten from PAWS. The staff was wonderful during the adoption, meeting us after closing to pick her up. After a few days with our first cat, we realized they would get along fine.
Since then, we've shared pictures and stories with
PAWS and have gotten to know staff. Friends, as well as ourselves, have adopted again and again from them. We all keep an eye out to see where they will be next!

My sister and I heard of PAWS through a friend, and volunteered to socialize the cats (Volunteer Kitty Petter). You could tell the place was well cared for because others were there to welcome us. We saw the cutest little kitten sitting quietly and wanted to adopt her on the spot. The lady at PAWS was an awesome help, holding the kitten while we made arrangements. She even met us the next evening after hours to complete the adoption. They want your pet to be happy and healthy- the follow up exam and entire process shows they are committed to those they serve. Pixie is wonderful, one of our two adopted kitties.

Paws is a great organization. I'm so happy our paths crossed and I am forever grateful for them because we adopted our amazing puppy "mia" who we changed her name to cannoli from them. Paws is very professional and take what they do very seriously and at the same time I felt like I knew them right after meeting with the women. Carole set up the two meetings we had and both were a success. Not only did they make sure my fiancé and i were the right parents for her but they also made sure our dogs and cannoli would be happy together. I really appreciated all the time and advice they gave me. I'm so happy to have dealt with them it was very easy going and enjoyable. I tell everyone about them and I would so recommend PAWS to any one looking for a dog or cat!
