Three Ways to Support CSA

Support our Shelter

01. Make a Pledge to CSA

Common Sense for Animals works continuously to provide a comfortable life for the companion animals in our care as well as work with the public to spread our message of conservation and common sense. Without the help and generosity of wonderful caring people this is not possible. Your contribution makes the difference. With your tax-deductible donation, CSA can continue in our mission to educate and provide a needed public service.

02. Gifts to the Shelter

Common Sense for Animals maintains a shelter in New Village, New Jersey. At any given time, we house and care for approximately 250 cats, dogs and small animals. Shelter efforts consist of housing, food, grooming and medical care. Keeping the animals fed and maintaining a clean environment require a good amount of daily consumables. Our shelter is always in need of items to help maintain a clean and caring environment for the animals in our care.

Here is a summary of the amazing work CSA Volunteers do!

  • Beginning by 8:00 am each morning, CSA begins its daily routine of cleaning cages and community areas, feeding and watering, walking dogs, and so much more. With approximately 250 pets to look after, we need all the help we can get! Later on through the day, we can always use people to take dogs for walks. They so deserve the individual attention, change of scenery, and exercise! There are cats who need brushing and attention, floors to sweep and mop, and bowls and litter pans to scrub! 
  • Twice a year, CSA stays in touch with the community through bulk mailings, and we need people to help fold and stuff envelopes!
  • Bakers are also needed for Bake Sales throughout the year! Most are held locally and before major Holidays. Items can be dropped off here at the shelter the day before or directly at the sale on the day of. If you are willing to contribute baked goods, please be sure to contact CSA staff via email or phone, and your name will be placed on our list to call when the next date has been set. Also, watch the web for future dates.
  • Events and fundraisers are another area where CSA needs your help. We host several big, annual events and many smaller, same-day ones. These fundraisers are essential to CSA’s survival; anyone with fresh ideas, time to help, or craft and auction items to donate is welcome.
  • Our shelter renovations are well underway, but the finished building will take major funds. You can help by volunteering your time and your SKILLS! If you are a carpenter, plumber, landscaper, excavator, electrician, or possess any other talents or skills that you are willing to donate, please consider volunteering for CSA.
