Bergen County Heroes of the Month
The Law Office of Kantrowitz, Goldhamer & Graifman is proud to support the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge. “One common thread among all the lawyers who work for our office is a passion for animals,” explains founding partner Paul Goldhamer. “We agree with the idea that the morality and the greatness of a society can be judged by the way the most vulnerable are treated. The Bergen County refuge does great work in improving conditions for local animals, a cause we’re really happy to be a part of.”
Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge combats overpopulation the humane way
Uncontrolled overpopulation leads to insufficient homes for cats and dogs in Bergen County. Some establishments euthanize animals without a second thought as a way of decreasing animal populations. By contrast, the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge adheres to a “no-kill” policy. Instead, every animal that passes through their doors receives proper medical care before getting spayed or neutered. Some of the animals they receive have been thrown out car windows on the freeway, wounded with staple guns, starved, and left chained to fences. Behavior therapy is given when necessary to rehabilitate abused animals to be more suitable for their forever homes. Every effort is taken to find good, secure adoptive homes for the animals that are ideal fits for both pet and owner.
Animal welfare education is a top priority
Managing the glut of unwanted animals is an important part of the job, but the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge knows that education is the key to securing a better future. America’s next generation of pet owners learn about responsible pet ownership through educational tours, group discussions, and animal interactions. The organization reaches out to schools, scouts, and 4H clubs to schedule animal visits and talks about bite prevention / animal welfare.
