Who We Are

Founded in 1941, SAVE is an independent non-profit animal shelter dedicated to protecting the health and welfare of homeless companion animals in the greater Princeton area. Through six core programs of Rescue, Shelter, Health and Welfare, Spay/Neuter, Adoption, and Humane Education, SAVE focuses on the rehabilitation and successful placement of treatable and adoptable animals. SAVE endeavors to build, foster, and strengthen the human-animal bond.


On February 21, 2006, SAVE merged with Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA). Founded in 1998, FOHA concentrated on animal rescue and care in the Princeton area. The new union, renaming the organization as SAVE, A Friend to Homeless Animals, is now the largest shelter for companion animals in the Princeton area. Consolidating 75 years of community involvement and a shared philosophy and mission, the merger of SAVE and FOHA has led to a greater number of successful adoptions.


SAVE operates as a limited admission shelter with contracts to serve Princeton, Lawrence, Hopewell, Montgomery and Cranbury animal control. SAVE depends primarily on private contributions to support its six core programs. The shelter facility houses approximately 100 dogs and cats at a time, and helps an average of 500 animals a year.
