Animal Assistance 501c3 Organization

Animal Assistance, located in East Brunswick, New Jersey, since 1952, is a pet adoption facility in a peaceful country atmosphere. Our family oriented animal center has a purpose to provide homes for animals down on their luck, on case by case basis. Animal Assistance is one of the few animal facilities in the area actually located on a farm country setting with over 60 years of experience.

On this website you can find links to our pets who are currently up for adoption, as well as pictures of pets who have been previously adopted. Please call us at 732-251-3210 during morning working hours (7-10 AM Mon-Thurs, 7-4 PM Fri, 8:30-10:30 AM Sunday) only; afternoons are spent with the animals. Visitors are welcome during above business hours. Closed on Saturdays. We are also closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.

Adoption Policy

Rules for Adoption
We like to stay within the tri-state area, so we can be helpful throughout the pet's life. Minimum donation is $150.00 for dogs. Declawed, indoor cats: $150.00. All other cats: donation of your choice.
Previous pet experience and veterinarian references are helpful. If you rent, we would like to see a lease that allows for pets. If you are a homeowner, please provide some proof of ownership. Our goal is to provide good homes for the pets. You are taking on responsibility for another life.

A lot of people think momentarily and not long term. Adopting or rescuing is a long term commitment. Come visit us, because the first step in a successful adoption is positive chemistry between animal and owner.


Pets for Adoption
We are all about the animals. Our strays are LOCAL abandoned cats and dogs. We give them complete health and medical support. You get an animal that is ready to go, crate trained and socialized. We do not disappear once you leave with your pet; we are here if you need us with trainers and veterinary care.

Interested in Adopting?
If you are interested in adopting any of these homeless, sweet and loveable pets, please call 732-251-3210. Our phones are answered between 7-10AM Monday through Thursday, 7-4pm on Friday or Sunday between 8:30-10:30AM. We are closed on Saturday. Phone conversations are preferred to email.

Also, should you wish to sponsor a specific pet until they find a safe and loving home please call 732-251-3210 during the above hours to make arrangements. Thank you.
