Cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Since its inception in 2004, HAL has grown into a vibrant animal advocacy organization that not only focuses on animal adoption, but also addresses other important animal-related issues.
HAL is committed to creating a humane world through humane education. We provide literature, support, and resources about a variety of topics such as living with companion animals, the importance of spay and neuter, animal abuse prevention, cruelty-free living, Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) for feral cats, wildlife protection, and more.
We assist the community by providing food, supplies, and/or medical care for companion animals during times of need in order to help keep companion animals and their families together. Moreover, we assist with feral cat colonies throughout New Jersey, either by helping proactive caregivers establish their own Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs, supplying cat food, or helping to finance spay/neuter and medical needs of feral cats.
HAL networks with other rescues, shelters, and organizations in an attempt to place as many animals as possible into loving homes, as well as expand humane education efforts.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
