Whiskers & Wags 4-Adoption

The Plainsfield/Raritan

About W4W

Whiskers and Wags was incorporated in May 2004. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt all volunteer rescue and adoption group.

The cats and dogs we have for adoption are all rescued animals. Many are former pets abandoned at area pounds, found on the streets, in parks and alleyways, or given up by their owners. Regardless of how an animal comes to us, we provide food, shelter, and medical care.

Adoption Info

Our Adoption Priorities - We as a group feel that each animal has their own unique personality, as do people. So when we look for a perspective home for our animals, the needs of each animal is our first priority. These animals have already had enough trauma in their lives, so we hope to insure that their new family will be their forever family.
Adopting a pet is a long term commitment. Cats and dogs can live 15-20 years. The animal will become emotionally attached to you and be there to support you and love you through every phase of your life. You should do the same. Before you adopt, please seriously consider the long term commitment involved.

Kittens & Adoption Fees

We try to place kittens in pairs. Kittens play together, sleep together, and keep each other company while you are out. They teach other manners and keep each other out of trouble. So unless you have another cat already at home, our kittens come in pairs.

We will ask you to fill out an application. Filling out an application does not mean automatic approval. All applications are reviewed by volunteers. We try to place animals that enjoy the company of other animals in a home where there will be companionship. But we do have animals who would be happy to be the only pet in your life. Our adoption fee is $100 for a kitten or cat. If you adopt two of our companion animals, the fee is $150. All of our animals are vet checked and tested. All inoculations are current according to the age of the animal.

We will take the animal back FOR ANY REASON. Do not give the animal away, or take it to a pound where it may be killed. Just call us and we will arrange to take the animal back.
