The Salem County Humane Society is a no kill shelter for homeless dogs and cats, located in Carneys Point, New Jersey. As a no kill shelter, we work hard to place animals in loving homes, but for those dogs and cats who aren’t able to attract a new family, they remain at the shelter permanently and they see all the volunteers as their family.
We operate strictly by donations and fundraisers, not by any local, state, or federal government funds, and our staff is 100% volunteers. We do not perform animal control duties; each township within Salem County has its own animal control officer.
All our animals at the shelter receive veterinary care including spaying and neutering. We never discriminate on the basis of health or age, and take in the abused, unwanted and abandoned companion animals that other human beings have forgotten. We hope people will become more aware of the plight of homeless animals as well as realizing the benefits of adopting an animal in need. We hope you will open your heart and home to one of these pets who is just waiting for the right person.
