About Us

Happy Homes Animal Rescue is is a no-kill, all-volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We are striving to help reduce the unnessacary euthanization of animals in New Jersey & New York.  I have worked in rescue in shelters for over 5 years.  In the last year I became heavily involved in rescueing animals from high-kill shelters.  In 1 year I was able to save 4 dogs and over 100 cats.  This made me realize if I wanted to drastically increase those numbers I needed to start my own rescue.

How we got started

16 years ago I met the love of my life my cat Payton who gave me a love and passion for all animals especially cats.  She was my first pet and suffered with serious medical problems all of her life.  At times it became hard and overwhelming but I never stopped loving her.  2 weeks before her 17th birthday her body gave up and she lost her life time battle.  Because of her and the love I had for her I vowed I would carry on my love for cats and in her honor I credit her for the over 100 cats I rescued on my own.  I realized if i wanted to grow and save more lives I needed to open my own rescue and carry on Payton's legacy.  I call my rescue Happy Homes because without my beloved pets I wouldnt have as happy as a home as I do!

In loving memory of Payton 1995-2012
