Beacon will visit Petsmart with adoptable dogs EVERY SATURDAY from 10:00 - Noon. Some of Beacon's cats and kittens are cared for at the store, so stop by to check them out any day of the week. Cat adoption counselors will be on-site from 6:00-8:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and from Noon-2:00 p.m. & 4:00-6:00 p.m. on Sundays.

A special thanks to all of our volunteers and all you have done for the animals.

BEACON ANIMAL RESCUE would like to thank the many volunteers that have helped Beacon become so successful at rescuing and finding good homes for the many wonderful orphaned pets in Cape May County. We would like to encourage other animal lovers to get involved and bring whatever talent you have to help these beautiful animals. We need volunteers to help care for the animals, help with fundraising, yard work, computer and office work, and help with adoptions and transport. If you can offer any of these things, even 1 hour a week, call (609) 390-7946.

REMEMBER: Our Support a Pet Program!

For just $10.00 a month you can help support one of the animals here at Beacon. Check us out on, pick the pet you'd like to support, give us a call, and we'll fill you in on the rest! A SPECIAL GIFT for the Holidays! Right now sponsor a pet as a gift and receive a decorative picture along with a special letter. Give the gift of love--$120 for a 1 year sponsorship and $60 for 6 months.

Adopting a friend

To adopt one of our animals, we need to perform a vet check and see proof that you either own your home or have permission to have an animal. If you do not have a vet reference, a home check will be necessary. Please bring or email the name and phone number of the veterinarian you use along with proof that you own your home or are permitted to have a pet. You must also have two forms of I.D. and complete an adoption application .

Adoption Fees:

Dogs $175
Puppies $250
