We are open for adoptions every day at 12pm!

Arise for your king, Arthur! I came to the shelter after being found as a stray. The medical team quickly realized that I am blind, but that won’t stop me from living a good life as part of your very own Round Table!

I’m 13 years young and looking for a quiet home to enjoy lots of relaxation. I’ll need a family with a gentle approach and one who’s up for some good old fashioned snuggling.

I can’t tell you if I’ve been around other cats before, but I could try being with ones who are very mellow. I certainly don’t mind being an only cat too. There’s an Excalipurr joke in here somewhere…take me home and you can tell it yourself!

Another reason I’m lucky to be at the Monmouth County SPCA because they adopt out lots of FIV+ kitties, and many shelters unfortunately euthanize them.

FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) means when exposed to kitty germs, FIV+ cats are more susceptible to catching something than a cat without. With limited resources to care for so many animals (sick or otherwise), many shelters have no choice but to euthanize those likeliest to get sick, and FIV+ cats are always at the top of the list.

Studies have shown FIV+ kitties can live just as happy, healthy and long of a life as a cat without FIV. A positive FIV status becomes a problem with outdoor cats that must fend for themselves and fight over limited resources. When an FIV+ kitty is kept indoors, fed good food, given lots of love, and taken for regular vet visits, their lifespan and quality of life can be the same as a cat without FIV.

How to Adopt a Pet

Can't adopt? Join our Sponsor a Pet Program!

We only do adoptions in person (please bring all family members). 

We will ask you to fill out an Adoption Survey and speak with an Adoption Counselor to help find your perfect match!

We are open to the public!
We encourage potential feline/exotic adopters to make an appointment before visiting the shelter.
Without an appointment, you might not be able to meet with the animals. ❤ 
Dog adoptions are conducted by walk-in only.

We are no longer scheduling appointments for dog adoptions. We are open Tuesday through Sunday at 12pm so families are welcomed to visit and adopt as walk-ins!

Adopting a pet is a lifelong commitment, so finding the right match is very important.

Finding the perfect pet takes time. The process usually takes at least an hour, so please plan accordingly. All adoption paperwork must be submitted to the front desk one hour before closing.

Adopters are encouraged to bring their own carrier or leash and collar.
