If you care about cats (and their humans) you should know about CPAW NJ

CPAW NJ In The Community

We offer workshops and participate in community events to promote awareness of ways to reduce the community cat population and reduce shelter intake.  We provide information on low cost spay/neuter, how to help stabilize the outdoor cat population through trap, neuter, vaccinate, return (TNVR), where you can donate pet food, and talk about ways community members and businesses can get involved.

Surrender Prevention

We provide free counseling for behavior issues, food assistance, and other support to prevent surrenders and help people rehome their pets.

Our Active Food Bin Pawtners

We give thanks from the bottom of our furry hearts for those folks who in the past hosted food bins for us to collect food for our surrender prevention efforts:
  • Aspen East Fitness, 1228 Watchung Ave., Montclair
  • Katz & Dogs Animal Hospital, 545 Valley Rd., Montclair
  • Montclair Animal Hospital, 124 Watchung Ave., Montclair
  • Verona Animal Hospital, 17 Grove Ave., Verona
  • Creative Confections Cafe, 206 Bellevue Ave., Montclair
  • Meadowlands Veterinary Hospital, 139 NJ-17, Hackensack
  • Jersey Spirits Distilling Co., Bldg. 7 #40B, 1275 Bloomfield Ave., Fairfield


Our efforts to prevent surrenders by donating pet food to local food pantries continues. At this moment we continue to need funds to provide food to the Human Needs Food Pantry of Montclair and the food pantry at Park Place Methodist Church, Bloomfield. The need is greater than ever. We appreciate whatever you can do to help people keep their pets.
Provide meals for cats
Buy some pet food and drop it off at the Human Needs Food Pantry, 9 Label Street. Both wet and dry cat food are needed; no expired food, please. We also have participating businesses locations around town who host donation pet food bins.
