Seaside Heights Animal Welfare Group
The SSHAWG is a non-profit organization 501C (3) that improves the lives of outdoor cats with a Trap-Neuter-Release program; an effective and humane approach to feral cats. SSHAWG works cooperatively with East Coast Spay and Neuter Clinic to vaccinate, neuter, and ear-tip each cat before returning them to their colony. We also have adoption available for our kittens and less feral cats.
One of our goals is to educate the community on how to protect and improve the lives of these cats. We value the dignity and worth of each cat and acknowledge their history and place in the natural landscape. We respect people and their compassion for cats and we consider learning an integral part to guide our work and protect and improve the lives of cats.
Our program is staffed by volunteers and is funded by donations of any kind (cat food, cat litter, paper towels, laundry detergent, etc.). Our program would not be successful without the generosity of others, and the countless hours and tireless efforts of our volunteers.
If you would like to help SSHAWG by making a tax deductible donation, checks can be made payable to Seaside Heights Animal Welfare Group, c/o Ruth Drake, 901 Boulevard, Seaside Heights, NJ, 08751. Or if you wish to drop off a donation, you can do so at the Municipal Building or by contacting Ruth at 732-793-9100. You can also contact Lisa Franciosi at 732-793-3596.

Meet “Mama” who is the matriarch of the Webster Avenue beach feral cat colony. It has been reported to us that Mama has been in the colony since the mid to late 1990’s. She is sweet and friendly but getting up there in years. Mama is ear-tipped, therefore has been spayed. She is just one of the many, kind, feline souls that drives us towards this cause.
