Ways to Support Us

Building For A Pawsitive Future

As the community shelter for 26 municipalities in southern New Jersey, 19 of which are in Camden County, we receive strays collected by animal control or surrendered by residents from any of these towns. As such, many of these animals require serious medical attention, which we’re happy to provide.

Over time, our building has increasingly showed signs of extreme wear and tear and we simply don’t have enough room for adoption facilitation, storage, cat and dog meet and greet rooms and more. Over the years, we’ve used a “band-aid” approach to address construction and plumbing issues. Our “tent” city located behind the shelter, serves as a makeshift location for storing pet food and supplies.
