Can You Help?

Father John's Animal House
Constact: Evan Kerekes, Animal Care Manager
(973) 300-5909

Below is the link for Father John's Amazon kitten wish list and a list of the high priority items. With the spring comes the beginning of kitten season which can last until the beginning of the winter. This is when Father John's has the largest intake of cats because the organization will frequently take in litters of around 5 kittens once or twice a week. These new shelter occupants are incredibly cute but also very fragile. They take the most investment of time, resources and money of all the animals we take in but are one of the most rewarding to see them grow and thrive.
