NO Adoption Fee for this handsome fella!


Poor Dewey came to us in March of 2014 when he was found hanging out in the cold with no place to call his own. A real character with an inquisitive nature and a “take-charge” attitude, Dewey soon became a favorite with staff and volunteers alike. Sadly, not long after he arrived, he developed a case of painful swollen lips. Our vet diagnosed him with a food allergy/Eosinophilic Granuloma Immune System Disorder, and he has been on a special diet ever since. His condition seems to be under control now, though he does have the occasional flare-up whenever he’s able to sneak food from one of the other cats. Due to his special needs as well as our great affection for him, we made Dewey one of our resident cats and he has enjoyed his time here with the JSAC staff. If you’ve visited the shelter, you may have even seen him lounging in the lobby or stretched out on top of the desk. Even though our shelter staff devotedly takes great care of our resident cats, Dewey needs to find a home to call his own. A relatively young and energetic boy, he would particularly enjoy a family who will allow him to run and play, and who will also be attentive to his special dietary needs. Please consider opening your heart and home to this very special boy. He just might be the brand new love of your life! Kids 12+

*Per JSAC policy, puppies and kittens under 6 months will not be adopted to families with children under the age of 6 years.

About Jersey Shore Animal Center

About Our Shelter...

Jersey Shore Animal Center is committed to the care of unwanted, abandoned, sick animals and to the adoption of these animals to responsible, loving homes. To that end, veterinary care is provided as needed, medication and inoculations are given and neutering/spaying is done prior to adoption unless the animal's health or age precludes this procedure.

In addition, a compassionate staff tends to providing for each animal's physical and emotional needs, taking care to keep each one sheltered, clean, well-fed and socialized.

Adoption Process

Our friendly, knowledgable team of staff and volunteers would be glad to give you a tour of the shelter and discuss whether one of our furry friends is the right match for your home.

The JSAC has careful policies on the placement of young animals, dominant breed dogs (Rottweilers, Shepherds, Akitas, etc). Due to our lifelong return policy we prefer to adopt our pets locally, so we don't adopt out of state. We prefer homes in the region so that we can be a resource for the animals and their adopters. These policies and procedures are in place to protect everyone involved and are very common when rehoming animals, whether through a shelter or a rescue group.

We do not have "same day" adoptions. Rather, an application for an animal is reviewed to ensure that 1) the home has taken good care of their other animals * 2) The animal is permitted in the home and 3) that it is the right home for the right animal (choosing dog that likes cats if cats already in household, etc..). Typically this process takes 24-48 hours. If a dog application is approved and there are other dogs in the home, we have the two (or more) dogs meet; many times if necessary.
