The South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter is committed to placing our animals in safe, loving homes. As a potential adopter, you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire, speak with one of our adoption counselors and meet with the pet you are interested in. Small children and current pets may be asked to meet with the animal before sending him home.
At times, such as when an animal enters our facility as a stray, we are required to hold the animal for a certain amount of time. Your adoption counselor will discuss this with you and make you aware of any requirements or restrictions that apply to the pet you may be interested in adopting.
All cats and dogs adopted from our shelter are spayed or neutered prior to going home. According to the surgical status of the animal, we ask that adopters are prepared to complete the questionnaire, meet with a counselor and pick up your new family member within 48 hours or less.
Adoption Fees - Why?
Charging fees helps us to recover just some of the funds spent on that one animal so that we can help the next animal who may enter our doors. These fees are minimal, and generally do not even cover the full cost of the services given to the pet while it was here in our care. If you were to receive a pet free of charge, and provide it with the same medical treatments as one of our adopted animals, the cost would be several times higher.
Adoption fee of $30
This adoption fee does not include the purchase of cage. Adopter must supply living quarters for the animal themselves.
A carrier to transport the animal home in must be provided by the adopter at the time of adoption - we cannot provide one for you.
