Angel PAWS is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to relieving the suffering of and finding permanent homes for stray, abandoned and homeless animals. They are based in Colonia, New Jersey and were the featured cat rescue group at the recent Central Jersey Cat Fanciers cat show that took place Jan. 9-11, 2015 in Parsippany, New Jersey.
Following is a brief interview with Donna Delicato, volunteer and board member of Angel PAWS, during the event on Sunday, Jan. 11, 2015:
How many cats and kittens did you bring to the show?
We brought nine cats to the show on Saturday, and from that effort we now have two pending adoptions plus many interested people who stopped by to see us. We are here again today with eight cats to showcase. We don’t do same-day adoptions. Potential adopters are asked to fill out an application. All of our cats and kittens are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
How many years has Angel PAWS been participating at this cat show?
We’ve been participating here at least seven years now, and we are the only cat rescue who are showcasing rescue animals today.
Where are the adoptable cats housed?
Some of them are in foster care, but the majority of our cats and kittens are housed in our shelter located in Colonia. It is a free-roam shelter, so when you come in the door, there are cats everywhere. It does include condos that are used especially for some special needs cats, but most cats are able to circulate freely. We have been in existence over ten years now at this shelter location, and we are able to house approximately 50-55 cats.
The Angel PAWS adoption center is located at 490 Inman Avenue, Colonia, N.J. 07067 Telephone: 732-340-1199
You can preview some of the adoptable cats online at Petfinder before making your way to the adoption center to meet available cats and kittens in person. An application is required, and you can find the application online here.
