CPAW NJ’s 12 Spays of Christmas: Same Team

Same Team

Sterling “TrapKing” Davis is a rapper-turned trapper who uses his voice to raise awareness about Trap-Neuter-Return and so much more. He uses his voice and social media platforms to show that “You don’t lose cool points for compassion.”

CARE stands for Companions and Animals for Reform and Equity. A Black, Indigenous, and People of Color [BIPOC] led organization, CARE is inspired to rethink and rebuild Animal Welfare in a way that honors and reflects the well-being of all people. They teamed up with TrapKing to create the CARE DARE event last spring to spread awareness about Trap-Neuter-Return.

We trapped 13 cats that weekend and they sent us 10 brand new, state of the art Tomahawk gravity traps!

They recently visited New Jersey and some of our most dedicated volunteers were able to meet with them for an inspiring dinner.

Here’s what Sterling “TrapKing” Davis (@the_original_trapking on instagram) had to say:

“I sat down and dinner with the ladies @cpawnjpurr on ways to be more effective….I love sharing ideas and bringing folks together so y’all know we’ll be talking more! Let’s make some moves!! ” … “It’s about @carecenters CARE COMMUNITY COMPASSION! And we all #sameteam Until next time family!!!”

Nina Love (@theblackthornberry on instagram) is an animal rescuer based in Philadelphia who we LOVE. She was recently featured on The Ellen Show. 

It was an honor to have met with these trailblazers and discuss the future of Animal Welfare and how CPAW NJ can have more of an impact! Like TrapKing says, “You don’t lose cool points for compassion.”
