About PAWS Montclair, Inc.
PAWS, (Pound Animal Welfare Society of Montclair, Inc.) is an animal rescue and shelter organization dedicated to the humane treatment of animals and facilitating pet adoption for stray and abandoned cats and dogs in our community. Founded in 1977, PAWS has been serving Montclair NJ and the surrounding communities for 37 years.
We are extremely proud of the number pet adoptions we have facilitated, and number of animals we have rescued over the years; successfully placing them with loving families. Many of these cats and dogs came from dire circumstances and were given another chance to share their lives with their new humans.
We are supported solely by donations. 100% of all donations go directly to the shelter. NO fundraisers are ever paid.
PAWS Montclair, Inc. adoption process
To ensure placement into a home best suited to each individual dog, the application process includes having applicants complete our Pre-Adoption Application form, on which we ask for some general information, including two references and a veterinary reference, where applicable.
An adoption counselor will process the application, and contact the applicant to discuss any questions or considerations either party may have.
If the adoption seems to be a good fit, a brief home visit will be scheduled.
If the applicant rents, a written consent must be submitted by the landlord stating that a dog such as the one being considered will be allowed residence in the building.
If more than one application is received for a particular dog at any given time, the applicants will be notified, and the adoption counselors, upon processing these applications, will make a decision, in the dog’s best interest, as to the adoptive home.
