Facts about Bertha

  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10748276
  • Hair: Short

When we received an urgent plea from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to help out with some of the overcrowded shelters in NC that were affected by Hurricane Matthew in October, we knew we had to help.  We took in 15 animals that had to be  moved so room could be made for animals that were displaced from the disaster.  All will spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped before they leave our shelter.  

10-20-16  4-5 months old.

Who's that little bundle of fur chasing that toy on feet that move faster than a cartoon coyote's? It's a bird... It's a plane... No, it's Bertha! No bigger than a minute, Bertha is one of several kittens who came to us from North Carolina after Hurricane Matthew forced local shelters to reach to us out when they became overcrowded with displaced animals. She is definitely a player who is sure to make you laugh out loud as she dashes across the room after a mouse or leaps in the air in pursuit of a string toy. This friendly, curious girl would love to find a home with a family who is willing to indulge her need for play. But rest assured, when the games are over, she'll be ready to cuddle up and give you some love. Stop in soon and meet this tiny athlete. She'd like nothing better than to be on your team!

 



*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.
