Open For Walk-Ins Every Day!

I’m Jackson, a 1-year-old Boxer Mix weighing 55 pounds. Brought to the shelter when my previous family abandoned me at the dog groomer, I’m hoping my next family never leaves me behind again!

When I was first brought in, I was very scared withdrawing to my bed for comfort. Since my friends here at the MCSPCA were kind, patient, and gentle I’ve bonded with many of them. My new adopters need to understand that I’m still an anxious and nervous boy so building trust is a must! Because I’m so fearful, I will pull on leash trying to escape from situations I’m not a fan of. Being an athletic and strong boy, make sure you don’t skip arm day as muscles will be necessary to manage me out on walks. You’ll also need to keep an eye on me around all exit points in the case I decide I want to bolt.

A warm home that allows me the time and patience to feel safe in my surroundings and with my new family is the way into my heart. If you have a gentle and calm approach, I will slowly come out of my shell and would enjoy engaging and playing with my family in a yard.

If you are willing to put in the work showing me that the world isn’t such a scary place, I will be your loyal companion in a heartbeat. The Monmouth County SPCA is open for walk-ins every day, starting at noon!

Adoption Hours:

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.
