RE: Charlie and Ginger My husband and I were heartbroken when my black kitty cat, The Pooch, passed away in September of 2012, at the age of 16. My husband and I had always talked about adopting 2 black kittens from our local animal rescue and shelter, PAWS Montclair. In October 2012, we were ready to adopt and thought we would find 2 black kittens. We used PAWS Montclair and looked at the pictures of kitties posted on their website. On October 17th, my husband and I drove 20 minutes to Maplewood to pick up brother and sister, "Charley and Harley", 8-week-old kittens from the foster family. They had been with their foster family for just 1 week. Their story is touching. The foster Mommy wrote in her blog, "Welcome to Maplewood, little ones. 4 healthy and beautiful kittens were rescued from being euthanized last week at the eleventh hour. Thanks to the Pilots N Paws Rescue Program, they were flown from NC to NJ for a second chance at life." They needed us and we needed them. (Even if they weren't black! hehe) We immediately fell in love with them and tweaked their names slightly to Charlie and Ginger. Charlie and Ginger have a big following on Instagram with over 6,000 followers. https://www.instagram.com/charlieandginger/ The babies turn five this summer and we will have a big pawty for them, like we do every year. We are very grateful to PAWS Montclair.

PAWS Montclair is such a fantastic organization! I worked with PAWS when doing a benefit concert for them. President Carole Michales was extremely supportive and down-to-earth. PAWS Montclair made the benefit concert such an amazing experience.
I adopted siblings about a year ago from PAWS. The adoption process was easy and a very nice experience. The volunteers I met, and the foster mommy of my new kitties, were compassionate and devoted to what they do. My kitties were rescued from a horder who neglected them so badly that they had to be treated for several diseases prior to adoption. I have happy healthy kitties that have acclimated to there new home wonderfully.
Thanks for saving them for me!
My family has adopted a few cats from PAWS over the years - a first rate operation! Keep up the good work!
