Pepper of Newark


Pepper is a beautiful, middle-age little lady that was rescued from the streets of Newark, NJ in May, 2018. With her bright and bubbly personality and never-ending tail wag, Pepper got herself noticed by an adoptive family quickly. Sadly, it was discovered during Pepper's adoption exam that she was heartworm positive and even though AHS was going to cover the costs of all treatment, the adopters no longer wanted Pepper. She underwent several months of treatment to cure the deadly disease and now Pepper is happy & healthy! She is such a love that makes friends easily with both people and other dogs, and she is so deserving of a great home. Until she finds that great home, Pepper has been added to our Share-A-Pet program to get some extra lovin' from some good sponsors.

We established the Share-A-Pet Program in February 1978 to save the lives of a number of dogs and cats who, for various reasons, were in special need of a “New Leash on Life.” The animals are selected by the Society staff from among those at our Animal Care Centers which the Society considers unadoptable due to age, handicap, medical problems, abuse, length of stay, etc. All Share-A-Pet sponsors through our web site will receive via e-mail the Society’s publication, the HUMANE NEWS, plus every four months, a color photo of each dog or cat they are sponsoring and a letter telling about the health and activities of the animal. All sponsors will also receive a Share-A-Pet membership card, which entitles you to free admission to Popcorn Park Zoo for the duration of your sponsorship. Please note: Should funds for one animal exceed the cost of its care, they are applied to all cats and dogs in need on the Share-A-Pet Program.

The Newark Shelter is the oldest and largest of the Society's three shelters. It provides complete services for animals including: - the surrender and adoption of cats, dogs and small animals - animal control services for contracted municipalities, county parks, portions of major highways - radio dispatched ambulances on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - complete medical facility with licensed veterinarians to treat both shelter and privately owned animals - executive offices - Spay/Neuter program
