I’m Princess! One royal senior Puggle who at 8 years old came to the MCSPCA as an owner surrender & very quickly became terrified of shelter life. With the help of my friends here, I found a patient foster home, where after a little rocky start I accommodated beautifully. I’m described as a loving companion who follows my foster family everywhere and naps the day away!
Interested in meeting this little beauty queen? The Monmouth County SPCA is open for walk-ins every day starting at noon!
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!
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.
