Facts about Nugget

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10589671
  • Hair: Short

This handsome 7-year-old came to us in early September covered in fleas and sporting an eye infection. Shame on his owners, who surrendered him due to “allergies in the home.” He’s a much happier boy now that his fleas are gone and his big, beautiful eyes are clear and alert. He’s still a little shy, but it’s easy to see what a big mush he’s going to be, because as soon as he feels comfortable, he gives you his belly, a sure sign that he’s ready for some loving. He’s looking for an owner who will recognize his potential and have the patience to bring out his sweet, loving personality. Could that owner be you? Come meet Nugget today! 


*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.
