AHS Newark, Essex County Branch

The oldest and largest of the AHS animal care facilities, this inner city shelter sees the most difficult and heartbreaking of cases at times.  The staff who dedicate their lives to working for the animals cared for at this facility see on a daily basis what many other animal care workers only see on TV or read about.  While the cruelty cases break our hearts, the success stories make it all worth it.  AHS Newark provides a second chance for animals that have suffered abuse, abandonment, and neglect.  Our goal is that the healing that a pet receives overshadows the heartbreak that they've endured.

AHS Lacey, Ocean County Branch

AHS Lacey serves towns throughout Ocean County and is also home to Popcorn Park Animal Refuge.  Although AHS Lacey is contracted with several towns for Animal Control services, we handle so much more than the stray dog or cat call.  Due to our Animal Refuge on site, our ACOs are experienced in all aspects of wildlife rescues as well.  From the injured swan to the snake or possum that finds themselves in a sticky situation, we help them all at AHS Lacey.  All animals at this facility are provided with expert medical care and in many cases, rehabilitative care as well.  We take in animals from all walks of life ranging from cruelty cases to elderly pets and farm and exotic animals as well, and ensure that they have all that they need, whether that includes a loving, adoptive home, or a place to call home for the rest of their days.
