Who's available for adoption this week at our Newark Shelter? Look below at our pets on Petfinder - all updated regularly!

Newark has approximately 300 cats and dogs, kittens and puppies available for adoption daily. Generally, 25 - 30% of our residents awaiting homes are purebred, and are no more or less lovable than our many mixed breeds and domestic shorthair cats.  You can now check out many of our dogs and cats awaiting adoption by using the new online Petfinder tool below - just scroll down to look, or enter the type of pet you'd like to adopt. Not finding who you're looking for? You may also want to check out out Tinton Falls shelter or our Forked River shelter.

If you're that special someone looking for a special new friend, please come visit our Newark Shelter or contact us. Please bring an adoption application to help speed the process.

And, If you would like to make the stay more comfortable for our adoptees, please consider donating a Kuranda Bed.

Can't adopt?

Why not `adopt' one of our lovable Share-A-Pet dogs or cats on a monthly basis? You can come visit with them, bring them treats and even take the Share-A-Pet dogs for walks!
