Thanks for visiting us! We appreciate your support in our work to rescue the many unwanted and abandoned animals in the Pascack Valley area. From adopting one of our wonderful critters, to fostering, volunteering or just shopping at our resale shop(all proceeds which fund our mission), there are so many ways to make a difference.
#GivingTuesday: December 2!
#GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. It’s the counterweight to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and is meant to put money or energy to worthy causes.
Every day of the year, the volunteers of Caring About the Strays (C.A.T.S.) work to care for and find homes for unwanted and abandoned companion animals. Naturally, the material costs for this work are ASTRONOMICAL: food bills, vet bills…It’s endless. On #GivingTuesday, consider helping out our efforts with a monetary donation. Every dollar helps animals in our area! You can make a tax-deductible donation by heading to our website (www.care4strays.org) and clicking on the PayPal button on the left side of the page. Or you can send a check (payable to C.A.T.S.) to our resale shop at 80 Kinderkamack Road, Westwood, NJ 07675
Make #GivingTuesday meaningful by giving to animals! Thank you in advance!
[C.A.T.S. is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization.]

WHY YOU SHOULD ADOPT FROM C.A.T.S.
There are many places to get a new pet. But when you choose one of our animals, you’re doing more than just bringing love into your home:
<-Our animals are given the best medical care possible, in advance of their adoption.
-Our animals are not kept in cages. They live in private foster homes, getting lots of love and attention, and being carefully socialized.
-Because we are not a shelter, and all of our animals are in foster homes, when you adopt from us, you make a space for another starving, unwanted animal. Your adoption pays it forward for another animal to come in from the cold.
-Our reasonable adoption fees cover the spaying/neutering of your new friend, along with initial vaccines and FIV/FELV tests.
-We give our new families all the information and support they need to make their new pet part of the household. Our caring volunteers have a wealth of experience in what to do – and what NOT to do – to make the transition seamless for everyone (including resident animals). We are always available to answer questions or offer help long after the adoption is completed.
-We are passionate about educating the public on the vital importance of spay/neuter. We do several low-cost clinics each year to help reduce overpopulation. When you adopt from, or otherwise support C.A.T.S., you’re becoming part of the solution.
If you’re looking for a new pet, please consider adopting from C.A.T.S.
If you have adopted from us in the past, please tell other animal lovers about C.A.T.S.
If you can’t adopt, please consider supporting our efforts with a financial donation. Use the PayPal button on the side. Thank you!
