The Volunteer Auxiliary For Animal Shelters, Inc. is a non-profit organization run solely by dedicated volunteers committed to helping shelter animals. We work with the Ocean County Animal Shelter (North) located in Jackson, NJ. We help by evaluating the animals and assisting with adoptions and finance medical treatment. A large part of our adoptions are done at off-site locations, staffed solely by volunteers. These locations have enabled us to place many animals in loving homes. If you are interested in volunteering, please call 732-341-9959 and leave a message. If you would like to make a donation, we are a 501(c) 3 corporation and listed as a charitable organization. Your donation is tax deductable. Please address your donation to The Volunteer Auxiliary PO Box 1432. Jackson New Jersey 08527. Your donations give sick, injured and homeless animals a chance. Please donate Kitten milk replacement such as KMR and Kuranda beds for cats.
Petsmart has graciously provided us a room to house cats that we have for adoption. While the cats can be viewed during store hours and applications may be left at anytime, most adoptions are done on Saturdays and Sundays. However, appointments may be arranged during the week. Our store is the Petsmart on Hooper Ave in Toms River in the Toys R Us plaza. Adoption hours are 10 - 2 on Saturday & 11 - 3 on Sunday. .
