My story

Meet Abby! This big girl is 5.5 years old. She's very social with people and just loves to be with you getting some love.

Abby was adopted back in 2019, but she unfortunately got returned when her adopter's mother ended up needing to go into assisted living and he lost his home. She is a happy friendly dog, but not one that can go to a Dog Park.

Abby has been with us since the end of February. Don't let her dislike of other dogs deter you from adopting her; she has plenty of love to give her human family to make up for it!! Abby loves car rides and to go on adventures.

Abby would need to go to a single animal home as she is not good with other dogs. She didn't seem to care about the cats in our nursery. She knows simple commands like sit and paw. She did live with cats in her previous home.

Abby is a strong girl who doesn't know her own size or strength. Because of this, she would need to go to a home with a fence, or a family that has experience with large breed and strong dogs.

If you are interested in adopting, you can fill out an application on our website at We are open Tuesday- Saturday 11-230.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

f you are interested in adopting from HSAC, there are a few things you should know. If you currently have a dog at home, it is strongly recommended that you bring your pet in to meet with the animal you are planning to adopt. This will be a requirement for most adoptions (and required for ALL dog/puppy 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. A vet and/or home check may be required. In order for us to be able to adopt an animal to you, we will need for you to bring a valid state-issued photo I.D. and documentation about your residence. If you rent, we must see a lease agreement stating that pets are allowed on the property. If you own your home, we must see proof of ownership - a tax bill, deed or mortgage coupon. We cannot accept utility bills or any other form of address verification. Adoptions of pit bulls and mixes must be approved by management for the safety of the dogs. We accept cash and major credit cards. Personal checks are not accepted. Prices and policies are subject to change at management's discretion. Cats and kittens are $100. Dogs over 8 months old are $200. Puppies under 8 months old are $400. Senior dogs over 7 years old are $100.

We are open from 11am - 3pm Tuesday through Saturday. We are closed Sunday and Monday.

More about this 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. 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.
