Seven out of ten cats who enter America’s shelters never come out again. Millions more homeless cats struggle to survive on the streets.
One un-spayed homeless cat over a twelve-year period can be responsible for up to 3200 new homeless cats.
Paws for Peace is a non-profit organization established to practice and promote Trap, Neuter, and Return, a humane and effective method of managing community cats. We believe that every cat deserves a loving home, but for those who are not so fortunate, TNR is the only proven method to help alleviate the problem of overpopulation in homeless cats. We hope to make the lives of all community cats better by fostering respect for them and cultivating an environment where people and cats can live together in peace.
The adoption process involves an application and at least one meeting.
We ask everyone interested in adopting one of our cats to complete an application. We will review your application, and if it is approved, you will have an opportunity to meet the cat and interact with him or her. Following this meeting, we like to take a day or two for everybody to sleep on the decision before we go forward with the adoption.
Approval of the application does not guarantee that the adoption will go forward. It is only one part of the process.
All of our cats live in private foster homes. They have their own condo at the Pet Valu in Piscataway, 1354 Centennial Ave, but we rotate them there, so if you are interested in a particular cat please contact us before you make the trip.
The adoption fee for a spayed or neutered cat is $150. The fee for an unaltered kitten is $90, with a $25 rebate when you spay or neuter your kitten. All cats and kittens are microchipped and vaccinated against rabies and distemper.
Once the cats are adopted, we like to visit them in their new homes to make sure they are settling in nicely and that the new situation is a good fit for everyone involved. If for any reason the adoption doesn’t work, we only ask that the cat comes back to us. These cats are our babies and we are committed to placing them in homes best suited to their personalities and those of the families who adopt them.
