CPAW NJ is honored to host “Rosie’s Fund” as a way for loving humans to make a donation in memory of a beloved pet who has crossed the rainbow bridge. The fund is named for Rosie, a cat who was rescued from the outdoors and much beloved by her
A memorial donation is a way to honor the memory of a beloved pet by a donation to help save more cats’ lives through trap, neuter, vaccinate and return.
I support CPAW NJ in their mission to help outside cats and in surrender prevention to honor Rosie’s life and memory.
I learned from her, as well as other outdoor cats, how trap, neuter, vaccinate and return (TNVR) helps these cats live a longer and healthier life.
The first cat I rescued was in 1978 when I picked up a small orange male kitten in two feet of snow. “Bilbo” is still one of my favorite cats. I didn’t get immersed in cat rescue until 2008 when I attempted to trap Rosy and her two daughters, Winkie and Blinkie. I say attempted because after having them spayed, I did not release them outside due to bad weather so they stayed in my house. Shortly after, my wife’s favorite cat “Pumpkin” passed away so we adopted Daisy, an orange female, from PAWS of Montclair. I became more and more interested in the work PAWS was doing so I volunteered. I started by helping at their adoption venues and fundraisers. I also began to volunteer and support A Purrfect World (a local cat sanctuary) and now support and volunteer with CPAW NJ.
