Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Most of our dogs were strays or owner-released in Trenton, NJ, but we are happy to adopt to out-of-state residents.

About Our Rescue Group:

Our goal is to give every homeless dog a fresh start in a forever home. Each of our dogs undergoes a thorough temperament test prior to being placed up for adoption. Our adoption coordinators are all dedicated volunteers and take the task of helping you find your new companion very seriously. Please reach out to us if you have any questions!

Come Meet our Pets:

Please email us at tsapadoption@gmail.com if you are interested in meeting any of our adoptable dogs!

Our Adoption Process:

To adopt a dog, please fill out a screening form. An adoption coordinator should be in touch with you within 48 hours to update you on the status of your application. Our adoption fee is $250 and adopters are asked to fill out an contract at the time of adoption. All dogs are fully vaccinated, have been micro-chipped, and are spayed/neutered prior to being adopted.
You can fill out a SCREENING APPLICATION at http://www.theshelteranimalproject.com/forms/dog-adoption-screening-form.html

Our Adopted Pets:

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
