(Clayton, NJ)—The Gloucester County Animal Shelter (GCAS) is open for animal lovers to walk through our kennels.
We are open to view and/or adopt an animal Tuesday through Thursday 12 Noon - 7PM and Friday & Saturday 12 Noon - 4PM. The Adoption Office is closed on Sunday's, Monday's and all major holidays.
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 Director Robert M. Damminger.
Director Damminger would like to remind residents that adoption fees are only $35.00 for dogs and cats 6 years and younger. Fees are waived for animals 6 years and older.
Adoption includes spaying, neutering, all age-appropriate vaccines and dogs are heartworm tested and microchipped.
The shelter is always accepting volunteer applications to help care for the animals. Individuals interested in volunteering at GCAS can find an application here: https://www.gloucestercountynj.gov/233/Volunteers-Fostering
“Our volunteers assist with so many duties at the shelter- its more than just cleaning but really spending time with the animals and caring for them like they’re their own. The animals love seeing our volunteers and we know they’re the best of the best,” said Deputy Director Frank J. DiMarco, liaison to the Animal Shelter.
GCAS Volunteers were honored at the Gloucester County Open House held on October 2.
