Our Mission

Founded in 1941, SAVE is an independent non-profit animal shelter dedicated to protecting the health and welfare of homeless companion animals in the greater Princeton area. The SAVE shelter facility has the capacity to house upwards of 100 animals at a time (approximately 75 cats and 25 dogs). Our number of adoptions is growing every year. We are committed to strengthening the human animal bond and to finding good homes for many deserving pets. As the region's model animal welfare organization and a premier adoption and volunteer center, funding is critical to the scope and quality of our services. SAVE is not supported by your tax dollars and does not receive funding at the local, state or federal levels.
