Open For Walk-Ins Every Day!

I’m Cinnamon, a 7-year-old Senior Pitbull weighing 45 pounds. Brought to the shelter when I was running around local streets as a stray, I’m hoping to live out my golden years in a warm, loving home!

Don’t let my senior age fool you as I still have some bubbly spunk left in me. Being without love for so long, I tend to get overly excited when I’m given affectionate pets from my friends here at the shelter. Calm attention and soft tones help to soothe me and I will soon do a little “pittie lean” into your legs, not wanting the pets to end. Coming from the streets, I most likely never had any toys to call my own. So, when I get my paws on toys, I turn into one bouncy girl, getting very overstimulated with playtime.

Patient and understanding adopters willing to pamper me, will be positively appreciated!

This loyal lady is ready to be your spicy little sidekick! Come meet her! The Monmouth County SPCA is open for walk-ins every day starting at noon!

How to Adopt a Pet

Adoption Hours:

Monday 12-5pm

Tuesday 12-5pm

Wednesday 12-7pm

Thursday 12-7pm

Friday 12-7pm

Saturday/Sunday 12-5pm

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 for walk-ins!

You can save time and fill out a survey online, they are also available at the shelter. Completing a survey does not secure any animal for adoption. You do not need to submit a survey to visit, nor do you need to receive a response to a survey to visit. The survey is NOT an application that needs approval.

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.
