Areas Township of Union Animal Shelter Serves

Union Township Animal Shelter is a municipal shelter which provides animal control services for the Township of Union, New Jersey. Unfortunately, this is a kill shelter, but the goal is to not have to put any animal to sleep. Our goal is to love and nurture animals while they are with us. Then we try to find them the perfect home.

Many wonderful dogs and cats are at the shelter, waiting for a forever home. These animals can be seen during our adoption hours. Pets come and go, so please check back frequently! If you are no longer able to care for your pet properly, you can turn him/her into the shelter. Proof of residency is required for Union residents to surrender their pets. We ask that you please bring your pet's medical records and provide us with any information you can to assist us in attempting to place your pet in a good home. Animal surrenders are accepted during the shelter hours only.

Township of Union Animal Shelter's Adoption Process

All shelter animals are spayed/neutered and vaccinated prior to adoption. To help offset this cost, the adoption fee is $125 for cats and $175 for dogs. We highly recommend paying the extra fee to microchip (especially for dogs).

Once the application is received we will forward it through the appropriate approval process and you will be notified. Obtaining approval in advance does not in any way obligate you to adopt an animal but it does speed up the process should you meet an animal that is right for you.

Please include the pet's name, ID number, and description if there is more than 1 cat in the same cage in your information request and/or application. The ID# is the same as their Cage#.
