Gloucester County Animal Shelter welcomes in-person visitors

Welcome back!

(Clayton, NJ)—The Gloucester County Animal Shelter is now welcoming individuals to the shelter to visit our animals in person.


The shelter's adoption department is open Tuesday-Thursday 12 p.m.– 7 p.m. and Friday– Saturday 12 p.m.– 4 p.m. An approved application is not required to walk through the kennel, but we do encourage you to fill an application out prior to arrival just in case you would like to meet an animal available for adoption!


“We have so many animals available for adoption at the shelter. From guinea pigs to kittens to dogs to cats, there’s a pet for everyone,” said Commissioner Director Robert M. Damminger.


Commissioner Damminger would like to remind residents that adoption fees are only $35.00 for dogs and cats 6 years and younger. Fees for animals 6 years and older fee is waived.


Adoption includes spaying, neutering, all age appropriate vaccines and dogs are heartworm tested and microchipped.


“Our residents are always supporting the shelter,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Frank J. DiMarco, liaison to the Animal Shelter. “The COVID-19 pandemic has not stopped the support and we are so happy to welcome our animal lovers back to the shelter!”


The shelter currently has over 100 kittens at the shelter and is seeking donations to keep them comfortable during their stay. See their Amazon wish-list here:
