The Friends of the Randolph Animal Pound
The Friends of the Randolph Animal Pound is a group of individuals who advocate for homeless animals by providing support services for the pound.  Membership is open to residents of all communities. The Friends serve the cause by raising funds for veterinary services and by contributing and soliciting dog and cat food, bedding, toys and other items needed by pound “residents.” Some of the members help out at adoption days, serve as dog walkers or act as foster parents for kittens who need to be socialized before they are ready to be adopted into their forever homes.

The Friends is a registered non-profit organization that needs your help. If you are interested in joining, please contact Claudine at 973.886.1485 or via e-mail.
