JAMIR

,
Rosie looks ferocious, but is the biggest sweetheart. Can you imagine that this dog was found roaming the streets of Trenton, but when found, came right up to the officer ready to go home. Unfortunately, no one ever came to claim her. She is a big girl by size, but has a lapdog personality. She is not a dog you want to just stick in the back yard and forget. She would make an excellent couch potato partner for football season, Saturday night movie, or any other indoor family activity. She would be great pet for any type household. She has been spayed, had all her booster shots and a rabies shot. She also tested negative for heartworms.

Meet Jamir! You will never meet a more affectionate and sweet boy! He LOVES people! He just wants to be where ever you are! Sadly, he was brought to the shelter due to allergies in the family. This guy is the perfect cat and should not be locked in a cage at the shelter, he should be on your lap! Please consider giving this good boy the home he deserves. Apply to adopt him today!

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 SMartinez@trentonnj.org.  

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.
All donations are greatly needed and appreciated, contact our office for a copy of our Wish List. Thanks again!
