We don't get a ton of press coverage (this has a lot to do with our behind-the-scenes work that's not always so easy to spot). But when we do, it's amazing to look at NJ STRAYS through new eyes and remember how much good we do for pets and pet owners in North Jersey:
NJ Strays is an organization based in Maplewood working to decrease animal euthanasia, founded by Adriana Bradley in 2012. They operate in Hudson, Bergen, Passaic, Essex, Union, Morris, Warren and Sussex counties. It’s easy to find them on Facebook and Instagram. They speak English and Spanish. They even have a YouTube presence with helpful videos.
And their statistics are impressive. In 2018, they found on average 111 lost pets each month, helped 23 families in need of assistance to keep their pets, and relocated 99 stray cats.
NJ Strays has an impressive social media presence, with pages for every county. These pages are staffed by volunteers who work tirelessly to find lost pets and match them with their families.
They provide low cost or free microchipping clinics. And because many lost pets don’t behave as expected, NJ Strays even offers search and recovery services to help find a missing and frightened pet.
Special thanks to our Communications Director Jackie Roman for working to put NJ STRAYS on the map! We couldn't do this without support from our many volunteers, sponsors, fosters and partners!
