RAY

COBAIN

,
2/3 year old neutered male DEAF Pit Bull Terrier Meet Ray, a male, deaf, Pit Bull Terrier that was abandoned by his owners, maybe because he was deaf. Ray is just a lovable dog that shows no aggression towards people or animals. He is really a big baby that loves playing with his toys. He seems to understand some commands like sit and down, but will need more work to learn other commands. He spends to better part of his day outside in his kennel, but comes eagerly to the cage door when he realizes you want his attention. He really needs a home that has the patience to love, play, and gives him consistent training that will allow him to flourish and grow in spite of his hearing challenges. He loves attention, to be petted and to cuddle, but watch out, he can get you with his “happy tail.” When he is the outside in the dog run, he really takes off in a sprint really enjoying the opportunity to stretch those legs. You really have to come and spend time with Ray to appreciate what this dog can offer to you and your family. I would not recommend a household with small children because he can get easily startled if he does not see you come up to him. He isn’t aggressive, but he could knock a young child over due to his size. Contact us if you are interested in adopting Ray.

Cobain is a super laid back, super affectionate kitty who gives the greatest head-butts! He was a stray cat that has been being fed for the past year by a Trenton resident. When the resident saw that this adorable boy was losing some hair on his legs he brought him to the shelter because he could not afford to take him to the vet. Turns out that the fur loss is due to either a chemical burn or the result being out in the elements during this very cold winter. Either way, there is nothing physically wrong with him. Cobain has received medical attention and his injuries are healing well, and now what he really needs is a new home! He is a young boy, only about 1-2 years old. Gets along with other cats and loves all people! Please consider giving this good boy the home he deserves. Go to http://www.trentoncats.org/adoption-form.html for our CAT ADOPTION SCREENING FORM.

Adopting a Friend


We are proud to be The Trenton Humane Law Enforcement & Animal Services Bureau. The Bureau requires that ALL adopters complete an application, participate in a personal interview, and sign off on our adoption agreement contract if you are approved to adopt one of our animals. All pets receive shots, worming, rabies shot (if old enough) and are temperament tested. The ADOPTION FEE for DOGS $120 and for CATS $100.00. All adoption fees MUST be paid in cash or money order.

The friendly staff here at Shelter cares. We make every effort to match you and your lifestyle with the right pet! We invite you to come and visit our animals by appointment only. To set up an appointment and visit a dog at the shelter smartinez@trentonnj.org. To set up an appointment and visit a cat at the shelter email TASCats@gmail.com. We are more than happy to set up a convenient time for you to meet your future pet!!

 



 

How to adopt?


1. All potential adopters MUST fill out an application or visit our dogs and cats at the shelter adoption days.

2. No holds will be given without an approved application.

3. The shelter reserves the right to deny adoptions.

4. The animals will be placed in the best possible environment for the animals.

5. Personal and vet references are required and will be checked. If you do not provide the complete name, address, and phone number for your vet (if applicable), your application will be automatically denied!

6. The Trenton Animal Shelter has a strict spay/neuter policy. There is no acceptable excuse for not having your animals spayed and neutered other than medical (i.e. heart condition). If your current animals are not spayed or neutered, you MUST provide proof from your veterinarian as to the medical reason why. Over 9,000 animals are put to sleep each day in this country. Please help stop overpopulation and the senseless destruction of these poor animals. Ask your vet about the benefits of spaying/neutering your pet. It could save their life and they could live up to 5 years longer!

 



 

Can't adopt? Be a Volunteer!!


The Shelter NEEDS volunteers!!! Although the Bureau serves as the animal control office for the City of Trenton, we still need help in finding these animals homes. Volunteers are asked to complete a volunteer application to keep on file. You can start immediately. No orientation or waiting period to work with the cats; volunteering with the dogs requires a brief orientation. We can tailor our volunteer possibilities to ANY schedule. Extra time or TLC to give? VOLUNTEER. The rewards are endless.

To volunteer with the dogs, email .  

To volunteer with the cats, email TASCats@gmail.com

If you don't have the time to volunteer, there are numerous ways you can help us out, call us.
