Gloucester County Animal Shelter welcomes new arrivals


(Clayton, NJ)—The Gloucester County Animal Shelter has animals available for you and your family.

The Gloucester County Animal Shelter’s adoption services are 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 our 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,” said Commissioner Director Robert M. Dammminger. 

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 are waived. 

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

“We take the time with each visitor to make sure that they feel comfortable with the animal they choose and the animal is a fit for them,” said Deputy Director Frank J. DiMarco. “The staff will walk you through the process with care and make sure you are prepared to take your pet home!”

The shelter is currently seeking donations to keep the animals comfortable during their stay. Check out their Amazon wish list here:
