Review for POUND ANIMAL WELFARE SOCIETY OF MONTCLAIR INC, Montclair, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have adopted several animals from PAWS - their volunteers do a great job of matching animals to homes- and they foster so they know the animals personality. They do an awful lot with very little money and are always helpful and caring. -

Review for NEIGHBOR TO NEIGHBOR NETWORK A NJNONPROFIT CORPORATION, Bloomfield, NJ, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I volunteered for this organization in June 2011. They made it as difficult to volunteer as humanly possible. I joined the media committee and had to sign document after document stating that I would not discuss issues that arose in meetings, would not post on social media sites, was not to contact other volunteers, was not to contact the 501(c)3 board. I joined to post animals on petfinder- They had not posted a single animal for the animal shelter in 6 months. It took over 2 months for them to give me a password and even then they didn't give me the admin priviledges to post files and kept asking me to update the files on petfinder....but I couldn't. The long term in-shelter volunteers were great , cared deeply about the animals and knew their stuff. Shelter management was a farce and didn't care if animals were adopted or not. I would not volunteer for this group again. I WOULD NOT DONATE MONEY TO THEM EITHER.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Rating: 5 stars  

I've adopted several cats from PAWS - their volunteers are absolutely wonderful. We see them at the Montclair Farmer's market, on the Montclair Watercooler and on facebook working both social media and face-to-face introductions of the animals. We currently have 2 cats that came from PAWS ***Yeager*** a large male orange tabby who was named Farley and ***Eliza*** who stayed Eliza.
