Review for Pound Animal Welfare Society Of Montclair Inc., Montclair, NJ, USA
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.
