Who We Are
P.A.T.C.H. (Pet Adoption Thru Caring Hands) is a non-profit private organization which operates a cat shelter in northern New Jersey. Our doors are open to stray kittens or cats needing a home, food, or medical attention. It is our goal to find suitable, loving homes for all of our shelter’s feline friends. We will never destroy a shelter cat simply because there are too many.

This is our commitment to these wonderful animals that enrich our lives.

There are no paid employees at PATCH, only dedicated volunteers. Please help in supporting our efforts by becoming a PATCH volunteer. Monetary contributions are always needed and greatly appreciated.



Fund-Raisers


Fund-A-Feline Friend

Our goal is to place each and every cat in a safe, loving home. If adoption is not an option but you would still like to help, perhaps you would consider our special “Fund-A- Feline Friend” program.

For just $10.00 a month, you can help support the needs of one of our cats. You can come to the shelter and choose a cat to sponsor or we can do it for you.

We will send you information and a photo of your special friend.
You can even put a sponsorship in someone's name as a gift. Request more information by calling 973-835-7202 or email us at PATCHAdoptions@aol.com

P.A.T.C.H. always welcomes volunteers who care for cats! We need loving people to clean our cats' houses, brush the kitties and help socialize them to make them suitable for adoption.

***Please note*** Information you will need when filling out the "Pre Adoption Form" includes: your veterinarians name and phone number, if you are changing veterinarians, we still require the name and phone number of your former veterinarian .

This would hold true for Condo or Townhouse owners as well. If you have any question regarding our adoptions email us at PATCHAdoptions@aol.com or call 973-835-7202
