Cat Chat is the quarterly newsletter of Open Your Heart, a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the number of dogs and cats destroyed in New Jersey animal shelters.


We hold euthanasia to be an unacceptable fate for abandoned animals and strive instead to reduce pet overpopulation through public education. We support the spaying and neutering of all pets, responsible pet ownership, and kindness and compassion toward all animals.
