The Atlantic County Animal Shelter was developed in 1995 as a response to the needs of the municipalities for a regional animal control facility. Since its opening, the number of intakes consisting of stray, unwanted and abused animals has drastically decreased by 50 percent. This achievement is attributed to the implementation of several programs, including all animals being spayed or neutered prior to adoption and early-age spay and neuter services. The primary goal of the Animal Shelter is to reunite lost pets with their owners and to facilitate meaningful adoptions that benefit both pets and owners. Community outreach programs and free canine obedience classes help support adopters and further promote responsible pet ownership. Visit www.aclink.org/animalshelter to learn more.
