Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

PAWS (Pound Animal Welfare Society of Montclair, Inc.) is a non-profit, 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to the humane treatment of animals and finding homes for stray and abandoned cats and dogs in our community. Our main goal is to match you and your family with the right feline or canine companion.

In our 43+ years of service to the community, PAWS has developed much expertise and a wonderful network of caring people, enabling us to be a highly responsive and flexible animal rescue group.

We currently maintain two small sanctuaries – one for dogs and one for cats – which, along with our strong fostering network, enable us to continue sheltering a limited number of animals in need. We also provide community outreach at the Petco Adoption Centers in Verona, NJ and Orange, NJ. Our cats and dogs are spayed or neutered, administered vaccinations, provided routine and emergency veterinary care, and all are treated with compassion.

Despite having to vacate from the North Willow Street facility in December 2008, PAWS has continued to operate, providing critical services to Montclair and the surrounding communities. Our long term goal is to be able to resume operating a centrally located facility, so that we can shelter more animals and facilitate adoptions with greater ease.
