We are a county run facility dedicated to rehoming dogs and cats. Most of our animals come to us as strays but we do get a large number of owner surrenders. We spay and neuter all of our animals prior to adoption as well as update them on all shots and microchip them.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We are open everyday from 1-4 and have extended hours on Wednesdays until 6:30 p.m. We are closed on holidays. We also have a sister shelter located in Jackson, NJ.
Our Adoption Process...
We do not have any applications. The only thing we ask is for proof of homeownership or a renter's policy that states you are allowed to have an animal. Our adoption fees are $55 per cat and $60 per dog.
