Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
All of our dogs were strays or owner releases from Trenton, NJ, but we are happy to adopt to out-of-state residents.
Trenton Animal Shelter takes in stray dogs and owner releases from across the city. Our goal is to give every homeless dog in the city a fresh start in a forever home. Each dog 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:
Our dogs attend adoption events every Sunday from 12-3 at the Petsmart located at 220 Commerce Blvd, Fairless Hills, PA 19030. Most of the adoptable dogs displayed will attend our events, but please contact us ahead of time if you are hoping to meet one pup in particular.
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 $120 and adopters are asked to fill out an contract at the time of adoption. All dogs are fully vaccinated prior to being placed up for adoption and most are spayed or neutered.
