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

Rating: 5 stars  

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!
