Vaccinate/Return” (TNVR) program at the Bloomfield Civic Center on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at 7 p.m.

Feral cats, also known as community cats, are cats that live outdoors, often in groups. Many are unsocialized and unable to live in a home as pets. The purpose of the TNVR program is to spay or neuter these cats so they will not reproduce, vaccinate them to ensure they remain healthy, and return them to their original location. Any friendly cats or kittens are retained and adopted out as pets. Continue Reading

Montclair Residents Start Communities Promoting Animal Welfare NJ Organization

BY  |  Thursday, Mar 30, 2017 12:15pm

Communities Promoting Animal Welfare NJCommunities Promoting Animal Welfare NJ (CPAW NJ) is a new tax exempt nonprofit organization based in Montclair. The organization is dedicated to helping people keep their pets by preventing animals from being surrendered to shelters, as well as assisting those who work to control and care for the community cat population.

CPAW NJ aims to keep animals out of shelters by providing their knowledge, expertise and resources to anyone considering giving up their pet. This preserves the emotional bond between humans and their pets and keeps cats out of shelters. People seeking help can find cat behavior advice on CPAW NJ’s website, as well as individual counseling and assistance in finding food. Rather than build a building or foster cats, CPAW NJ will partner with as many community members and organizations as possible to keep people and pets together.

CPAW NJ will also work to keep animals out of shelters by controlling the population of community cats through promoting trap, neuter, vaccinate and return (TNVR). CPAW NJ applauds people who care for the community cats in their neighborhoods and will partner with them and private organizations to engage more proactively in this life saving practice. Collaboration will spur more efficiency and enhance the possible success in maximizing the use of scarce resources.

Through education and awareness of TNVR for community cats and alternatives to pet surrender, CPAW NJ will decrease the burden placed on local animal shelters.

“We believe that by collaborating with local community members, we will be able to most effectively accomplish our humane goal of promoting animal welfare,” said Karen Shinevar, one of the founders of CPAW NJ. “I think most people would agree that it’s best for animals and their humans to remain a family and to make sure the community cat population is neutered and vaccinated.”

Shinevar, Marie-Christine Lochot and Rafik Tawadrous founded CPAW NJ with a mission to keep animals out of shelters through helping people keep their pets and by controlling the population of community cats. The organization values compassion, collaboration and celebration in order to promote animal welfare…four paws at a time.

Anyone interested in getting involved with CPAW NJ’s efforts is encouraged to visit online here.

Missing Cat

Please help us find Phoebe, our 18 year old female Russian Blue. Friendly, but she is not used to being outside and may be hiding. Talkative and loves cheese! Escaped through back door from home on Highland Avenue near Normal Avenue in Upper Montclair on 2/28. Wears tag with her name and our phone number. Reward offered. Thanks for your help.

It's a shame that this happened. Michael Pavel came up with a plan for Charlie Brown's that worked out great and lived up to his presentations. Following it up with this is like a movie director who makes a movie that wins the Best Picture Oscar and follows it up with a film that gets ten Razzie nominations. :(
