The Green Hills Animal Shelter, a not-for-profit, volunteer organization, is dedicated to providing animal care, protection and adoption services for stray and abandoned animals in Trenton and neighboring towns. It is the only regional animal shelter within 75 miles of Trenton. It is available to service Trenton and surrounding counties and towns.

About Our Shelter:

We like to call ourselves a "promise" shelter. We promise to do everything possible to find a h ome for every animal in our care. We will provide these animals with a safe environment. By serving as a temporary loving home, we increase their confidence and trust in humans. By providing a "home environment" such as housing in the Cat Village or Dog Dorms, we give them the housetraining and socializing they need to live with humans. By providing obedience and other classes to animal owners, we are creating a bond of love and trust between humans and their companion animals.

Our Adoption Process:

We are seeking a permanent, loving, responsible home for all companion animals. So that we may be assured that the animal you wish to adopt is best suited to you, your home, and your lifestyle and is placed in an environment that is capatible with his/her needs, we ask that you complete an application. Please note we have two separate applications, one for cats and one for dogs.

In order for you to adopt an animal, we need you to . . .

- be sure that you are financially able to provide for the animals's needs. This includes food, supplies, license and veterinary care.

- be sure that you have adequate time to spend with your new pet, including training, exercising and grooming.

- have your landlord's permission to bring an animal into his/her property

- have the consent of all adults in your household.

- be at least 18 years of age and have verifiable identification.

- complete this application in full and discuss it with a GHAS employee or volunteer.

- understand that this an adoption, not a sale. GHAS reserves the right to postpone or refuse an adoption.

If your application is approved, you will be asked to pay the adoption fee and sign an adoption contract.

The adoption fee for dogs is $99.00, which includes rabies, bordetella and DA2PPV vaccines, de-worming, heartworm test, and the spay/neuter of the dog. No dog will be home from the shelter without being spayed/neutered.

The adoption fee for cats is $69.00, which includes the FVRCP and rabies vaccines, de-worming and the spaying/neutering of the cat. No cat will be sent home from the shelter without being spayed/neutered.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
