About Us

Camden Companions Animal Rescue (CCAR) was founded in 2011 with the mission to reduce the number of homeless companion animals in and near Camden County, New Jersey.  We work toward this mission by:
  • Adopting homeless cats and rabbits to loving and responsible families.  In 2015, we performed 172 adoptions.
  • Providing foster care for homeless cats and rabbits until a home can be found, or in rare cases, for the life of the animal
  • Trap-neuter-release of feral cats to compassionately reduce the size of the feral cat population
  • Educating pet owners about the importance of spaying/neutering their pet, and providing assistance to pet owners who desire this service but lack transportation or the financial means to do so

We are a no-kill rescue; we do not euthanize animals unless medically necessary.  We rely on donations from the public to bridge the gap between veterinary expenses and adoption fees.  Donations to CCAR are tax-exempt under section 501(c)3 of the tax code; save your donation receipts for tax purposes.

Since we are volunteer-only and foster-based, your donation isn't going to salaries, rent, or utility bills...it's going directly to the animals' veterinary care, food, and supplies!
