LHS and Neighborhood Cats Team Up to Fix Ferals in Jersey City

Feral Cat Program Things are looking up for feral cats in Jersey City’s 07306 zip code. That’s because the area, currently overrun with unowned cats, has been selected as the focus of a 250-cat targeted spay/neuter project, to be jointly administered by Liberty Humane Society and Neighborhood Cats. The project is made possible by a grant from PetSmart Charities®.

In the coming months cats in the target area will be humanely trapped, spayed and neutered, and returned to their original locations. Spay/neuter services will be provided by the People for Animals clinic in Hillside, NJ. The cats will also be vaccinated against rabies and “eartipped” – under anesthesia the tip of the left ear is painlessly removed, to permanently mark the cat as being “fixed”. The whole process is called Trap-Neuter-Return or “TNR” and is the best way to gradually reduce the numbers of outdoor cats while improving overall health and eliminating the mating behaviors that create public nuisances, like pungent tomcat spray and late-night caterwauling.

The city’s 07306 zip code accounts for one of Liberty Humane Society’s highest intake rates of feral and stray cats, with 143 kittens and adults turned in over the past year. TNR for this targeted project will be concentrated in the area’s northeast section as far west as Tonnelle Avenue and with Lincoln Highway marking the southern border.

Residents in the target area can report the locations of unneutered colonies by contacting our Jersey City Feral Cat Hotline, (201) 351-7772 or by emailing Community members can also receive training from Neighborhood Cats to become feral cat caretakers – a sort of kitty guardian angel – to make sure their colonies are properly fed and sheltered. Anyone interested in fostering a kitten or friendly cat rescued from outdoors during the TNR project may inquire about Liberty Humane Society’s foster care program; visit the shelter at 235 Jersey City Blvd. or email

Featured Cat


Tip Meet Rinoa. More than anything she wants to find my forever home. She is a sweet, demure and the little lady of the cattery.

We often see her at the front of her cage so you will notice her. Rinoa perfers to take it slow; you will be sure to win my heart. She does love her treats and will eat them right out of your hand. She's not always quite so demure, however-- she loves to play and romp!

If you are looking for a sweet kitty, that is quiet, cute and refined, then look no further. Petfinder profile.

Featured Dog


Mellow Our boy Mellow had some bad luck before arriving here at the shelter. His owner loved him dealy, but he became homeless and could no longer keep Mellow.

This "low-rider" has the most beautiful blue eyes and is sweet, affectionate, and loving toward everyone he meets. When meeting new people, he wags and wiggles right up for pets and cuddles.

Mellow is confident, outgoing, and social and would do wonderfully with children. He has no guarding issues, is very tolerant of handling. However, Mellow would prefer to be the only dog in your home, and in your heart. Check out Mellow on his Petfinder profile.
