Our Mission is to protect and advocate for all animals. We are dedicated to enforcing animal cruelty laws; providing a safe haven for homeless, abused and abandoned pets while they await adoption; reducing pet over-population through spay/neutering; and cultivating their humane treatment through education and service as a valuable community resource.

Our Vision is to be established firmly with our own unique identity throughout New Jersey and the animal welfare community as a leader in all things related to animals in Monmouth County and the people who care for them. We will be responsible for ensuring that all animal abuse is prosecuted and will increase our support of campaigning for the rights of animals in New Jersey. We will be a strong partner with other animal welfare organizations throughout the state in order to develop and share best practices, and to work together to make New Jersey a place where every animal is treated with respect, kindness and love.
