Our Mission

Our mission is to protect and care for all animals & provide animal services to the City of Trenton.

Adoption Policy

Anyone interested in fostering or adopting a dog from The Trenton Animal Shelter must complete an application. All applications for foster or adoption will be screened for suitability and must include personal and veterinarian references. Once approved, a representative from the shelter will contact the applicant and set up a meeting with the animal. All other animals in the household and family members must participate in a “meet and greet” with the desired animal in order to confirm suitability.

Adoptions are finalized with a contract releasing the animal to the adopter(s).

The shelter does not allow return of adopted animals, with the exception of Trenton residents, who may re-release their animal to the shelter. However, the adoption fee is non-refundable.
