Welcome to C.A.T.S.

Who are we?

Since our founding in 1995 by Lynn Cancro, Caring About The Strays (C.A.T.S.) has worked to find forever homes for abandoned, unwanted, neglected, or abused companion animals in the Pascack Valley area. All the animals in our care are in foster homes, which helps socialize the cat or dog and allows us to identify the best type of home for each animal to ensure a successful adoption. We also work to reduce the overpopulation of feral cats with our Trap-Neuter-Release program. In addition, our team also strives to educate the public about the importance of spaying or neutering their pets to decrease the number of unwanted pets.
