Our Amazing Team of Volunteers Is Committed to Animal Welfare

...and Growing

As a 501c3 non-profit organization rescuing dogs and cats in North Jersey, NJ STRAYS operates on a lean budget. We rely on our dedicated volunteer staff to provide expert pro bono services in project management, animal search and relocation, marketing, fundraising, customer service and animal care. Because our team is wonderful, your donation goes to supporting the costs of shelter intake reduction.

If you love animals and want to help, consider volunteering with NJ STRAYS. You'll be in excellent company!
