Animal Welfare in Hudson, Bergen, Passaic, Essex, Union, Morris, Warren and Sussex Counties

NJ STRAYS is a No-Kill animal welfare organization. We're a bilingual team of animal-loving volunteers who support pet owners and their animals. 


Since 2012, we've been working to reduce shelter intake and decrease euthanasia among animals at shelters. In short, we stop family pets and strays from entering the animal shelter system.

How we do it?

Through three main projects









We sponsor microchipping clinics, low-cost spaying, and neutering. We also provide advocacy for and education about the No-Kill animal movement.  

NJ STRAYS is 501c3 non-profit dog and cat rescue charity that can always use donations, volunteers, or even just a like on Facebook. All of the donations we receive are tax deductible and go directly to supporting the animals and pet owners we help.
