About Us


We are open to the public daily from 12pm to 4pm.

Special appointment times by advance request only.

Come in to meet your new family member! 
Please check our Facebook page for updates and announcements and our blogspot for current events and information! 
We have suspended our volunteer orientation program at the shelter until post-fire construction/rebuilding is completed and we are fully up & running again.
As usual, we are still honoring our Animal Control services within our contracted towns of Montclair, Nutley & Verona. 

Please call your local non-emergency police department for Animal Control issues. And for pet medical issues, please contact your veterinarian.

Who We Are

We intake animals whose owners are unable to keep them and stray animals for our contracting townships. All of our cats, dogs and some of our small and exotic animals are spayed or neutered and vaccinated as applicable before adoption. All of our cats are tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV and all of our dogs are tested for heartworm. 

Our adoption process ensures that we place animals in safe, loving, permanent homes. Our adoption fees are the following: Cats/Kittens $120 and Dogs/Puppies $160. This price includes age appropriate vaccines, spay/neuter, and micro-chipping. 

Please contact us if you have any questions about us or our animals!
