We envision a future where every pet has a family and every family can keep their pet.

Companion Animal Advocates (CAA), is a non-profit, all volunteer organization based in Northern New Jersey. CAA is committed to keeping family pets from being surrendered to already crowded shelters because their owners can no longer care for them.

CAA is making a significant difference in the lives of so many people in our community - our own neighbors. We are proactively addressing day-to-day issues that every pet owner faces through the following initiatives:

• Pet Retention
• Low-Cost Spay & Neuter
• Adoption Advocacy
• Pet Safety

While the organization itself is new, the people that make up the group have decades of collective experience in a variety of animal welfare areas. Most importantly, each volunteer has a passion for animals and the love and companionship they provide. That passion is key to the long-term success of CAA.

1. develop, encourage and nurture the relationship between people and domesticated animals;

2. provide assistance in times of emergency to pet owners and their animals; and

3. provide assistance to the under served to enable them to enjoy the companionship of domesticated animals.
