C.L.A.W.S. Adoption Center and Pet Food Pantry

63 North Washington Avenue, Bergenfield, NJ

Times are tough and C.L.A.W.S. is here to help!

Unfortunately these days people are forced to give up their beloved family pets due to the struggles in the economy. Finances are low and pet food costs are expensive. As animal lovers, we at C.L.A.W.S. would rather help these families care for their pets then see them have to give them up. For this reason we are happy to help the surrounding communities in Bergen County with pet food supplies. Our pantry is open 3 days per week and our volunteers are there to supply people with pet food for the week. If you are in need please stop by the center at the following times:

Saturday & Sunday 10am to 12pm

Please bring some form of I.D. with proof of residence for Bergen County.

Please note that we have other programs to help feral cat colonies such as TNR (trap, neuter & release) but we are not able to provide food for these colonies. This food is for house pets only.


DONATE: If you would like to donate any unopened cat or dog food please feel free to drop off at our same location and same hours as above.

KIDS PROJECTS: We have been very blessed throughout the year to have school kids, boy scouts and girl scouts put together Food Drives for the pantry. If you or your child is interested in hosting a Food Drive please contact us at and someone will get back to you with information.

Items Needed:

Wet and dry cat food

Wet and dry dog food
