Hi I'm Gumby. I was part of a shelter Transfer from El Farro in Puerto Rico back in April 2016. At the time of my arrival I was having a bloody nose almost daily. After MULTIPLE tests it was found I had a TVT in my nose (a type of Cancer that is actually transmitted from other infected dogs). I have been going to Red Bank animal hospital in Tinton Falls for chemotherapy treatments. Last week 9/28/16 was my last treatment! Want to know something spectacular!? I'M NOW CANCER FREE! I've been in a shelter my whole life and am craving to call a place my FURever home with people I can call my family. I would do well in a home with a big fenced in back yard because I love to run around and play. Since the attention has never been on me before I would like to be the only dog in the home so I can finally receive the love I've been longing for my whole life! My friends here at HSAC suggest me going to a home with kids the age of 10 and up because I get very excited when I play and can be jumpy and mouthy. I'm just so excited, I'M CANCER FREE! Can you blame me?

About The Humane Society of Atlantic County

About Our Shelter...

The Humane Society of Atlantic County was established as an Animal Shelter in 1968. Our mission is to curb pet over-population through our clinic’s spay and neuter programs, increase the number of animals adopted into loving homes through our shelter, provide a safe and caring environment for animals that are lost or strayed and to serve as a resource for humane animal education within our community. Our organization strives to improve and protect the lives of companion animals by promoting healthy relationships between pets and people.

Our successful adoption programs give us the ability to open our doors to thousands of animals facing euthanasia due to overcrowding or lack of resources in other shelters all over the United States. Our Shelter Outreach Program also enables us to offer a greater variety of animals to our adoption clients. In addition to partnering with many regional animal welfare agencies, we are part of the national Rescue Waggin’® program sponsored by PetSmart Charities.

The Humane Society of Atlantic County is a private, non-profit organization that relies on donations from our generous supporters. We are not operated or funded by any national humane groups or governmental agencies and must rely on contributions to bring our services to the community.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting from us, there are a few things you should know.

If you currently have an animal at home, it is strongly recommended that you bring your pet in to meet with the animal you are planning to adopt and will be a requirement for most adoptions done here at our facility. It is very stressful for humans and pets when things don't work out after the new pet has arrived.

In order for us to be able to adopt an animal to you, we will need to have you bring a valid state-issued photo I.D. and documentation about your residence. If you rent, we must see a lease agreement showing that pets are allowed on the property. If you own your home, we must see proof of ownership such as a tax bill, deed, or mortgage coupon.

Cats and kittens are $70.
Dogs over 6 months old are $120.
Puppies under 6 months old are $200.

We accept cash and credit cards.
