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.  Please note, we do not have much background history on these pets and do not guarantee housebreaking.  

12-19-16  Lil Joe sadly came up to us with heartworms.  Treatment for that is no fun, especially for dogs like Lil Joe who love to run around and play.  Its a tough treatment and its expensive....many shelters would not treat a dog with heartworms. He is quite the escape artist so a secure yard and a watchful eye are a MUST for this boy.  He will scale a fence in no time flat or dig his way out.  He loves to go for walks and play with the staff and volunteers.  He would love to have an owner who jogs.  So far, he does not seem fond of other dogs (we have not cat-tested him yet).  Tho Lil Joe wont be in a home for the holidays, we're hopeful 2017 will be the start of a new beginning for this sweet boy.  An active family with kids 8+  would be great.  

Joe has completed his treatment for heartworms.  He is now available for adoption!  yay!  

*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.
