Mission: PAWS (Pound Animal Welfare Society of Montclair, Inc.) is a non-profit, 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to the humane treatment of animals and finding homes for stray and abandoned cats and dogs in our community.
Results: In our 37+ years of service to the community, PAWS has developed much expertise and a wonderful network of caring people, enabling us to be a highly responsive and flexible animal rescue group. We strive to answer every call and email in a timely manner, and offer guidance and alternatives to keep animals in their home, or when necessary, find a new home. We currently maintain two small sanctuaries – one for dogs and one for cats – which, along with our strong fostering network, enable us to continue sheltering a limited number of animals in need. At any given time, we typically can care for up to 8 dogs and 50 cats and kittens.
Target demographics: homeless pets
Geographic areas served: Montclair, NJ - Essex County, NJ
Programs: PAWS focuses on “rescue” and “reduce” through careful adoption, fostering, and humane education. The initiative expands our ability for: finding animals good, appropriate, forever homes; preventing warehousing and/or euthanizing adoptable animals; changing public consciousness about the value of animals and our responsibilities to them; helping address the puppy mills issue; and promoting spay/neuter.
