The Atlantic County Animal Shelter was developed as a regional response to the needs of local municipalities for an animal control shelter. It opened in October 1995. The Animal Shelter operates with a small staff and volunteers who help handle the care and feeding of the animals. Animals may be adopted by members of the public. The shelter offers educational programs. Schools and organizations are welcome to tour the facility and meet with the staff. Donations of pet food and supplies are greatly appreciated.
The Animal Shelter is open seven days a week:
Tuesday, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Address: 240 Old Turnpike Road, Pleasantville, NJ 08232
