Jersey City Free Books serves the entire community — including those on four legs! We need your help so that we can help both cats and people. Click on this Link for the Amazon Wish List or donate at our GoFundMe Page. Even just dropping off a bag of kitty litter (non-clumping) when the shop is open will mean a lot. If everyone reading even gave SOMETHING, we’d be well on the way to providing for suffering cats left to fend for themselves.

The picture above shows Little Blake the Ouija Cat, one of our success stories, on August 20, 2012. That’s the day she was rescued after being abandoned on Central Ave. near the post office.

Too weak to stand, the very young kitten was covered with fleas. She also had an eye infection, ear mites, ringworm and intestinal parasites.

Luckily, the tyke was small enough and the day was warm enough so that her entire body could be dipped in the bathroom sink. The fleas still on the head were carefully removed with a fine comb. And that was the easy part! The other conditions required considerable care and the application of medication.

In April, we saved these kittens from a one-way trip to the junk yard. The little crew were in an old car that was about to be towed away. Jersey City Cat Rescue took them all in along with their mother.

Little Mitzy caught a cold and so took a trip to the vet.

Luckily her recovery was speedy, but the bill was $184.

These are just a few of the many cats that Jersey City Free Books has saved. More need help!

Little Pat was neutered this week. He's a delicate boy, so he's still recuperating. A Metro Cat Rescue volunteer saved Little Pat last Labor Day weekend.

Animal Cruelty Registry Would Be Created By Sweeney Bill

Senate Approves Legislation Creating List of Those Convicted of Animal Cruelty

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senate President Steve Sweeney that would create a registry of those convicted of an animal cruelty crime was approved by the Senate today with a vote of 36-0.

“The abuse and mistreatment of animals violates our standards of basic decency,” said Senator Sweeney. “A registry sends a message that animal cruelty won’t be tolerated at the same time it will help to prevent repeat offenders. We need to protect pets and other animals that are all but defenseless from abuse by people.”

The bill, S-2295, would require the state Department of Health to establish a public animal abuser registry of those convicted of an animal cruelty crime on its website and would also bar anyone found guilty of an animal cruelty offense from becoming an animal control officer.

The registry would be modeled after the similar list of sex offenders under Megan’s Law. According to the bill anyone convicted of animal cruelty in New Jersey would be added to the database. The registry would be publicly accessible on the department’s website.

If enacted, New Jersey would be the second state, after Tennessee, to create an online registry.

The legislation stipulates that within 90 days after the effective date of the bill, the courts, the Department of Law and Public Safety, and any other governmental entity maintaining records of an animal cruelty violation, is to provide written notice of the violation and the name of the person convicted of the violation within past 10 years to the Commissioner of Health for the registry.

The bill also expands the offenses to be considered as disqualifying offenses and authorizes the Commissioner of Health to use the animal abuser registry, once established, to update and maintain the list of persons ineligible to be animal control officers.

Assemblyman Troy Singleton is sponsoring the same legislation, A-3421, in the Assembly.
