Communities Promoting Animal Welfare NJ (CPAW NJ) is a grassroots local non-profit organization dedicated to promoting a humane approach to animal welfare and protecting the human/animal bond by being the voice for animals who cannot speak for themselves. CPAW NJ does not trap cats or foster them; it collaborates with existing people and organizations who do. In addition, its mission is to connect people with community cats in their area with the necessary resources and education, including trained people to perform tnvr, to help the people and the cats live humanely together.
We are your neighbors dedicated to promoting a humane approach to animal welfare and protecting the human/animal bond by being the voice for animals who cannot speak for themselves. We believe preserving the bond between humans and their pets and reducing pet overpopulation by implementing best practices in managing the community cat population saves money and resources and provides a better quality of life for cats (and humans) than shelter surrender or abandonment.
We hope to serve working families, homeless people, homebound seniors, the unemployed, and people who have fallen on all manner of hard times. We serve community members caring for community cats. We serve families struggling to care for their pet under hard times or having behavioral issues. Most of all, we serve organizations on the ground doing the trapping, fostering, and caring for these animals to lift them up and share stories and best practices.
Compassion. Collaboration. Celebration...four paws at a time!
