Who We Are

Companion Critters, Inc., a 501(c)(3), non-profit New Jersey corporation, was founded on September 17, 2000 to help the animals on death row in shelters and pounds. To date, 540 homeless pets have been saved.

All pets adopted from Companion Critters will be spayed or neutered before they are released to new homes. In addition to our rescue efforts, we actively promote and provide low cost spaying and neutering services for both owned and feral animals. Our goal is to be part of the solution of pet overpopulation.

Adoption Process

After we have processed your application, we will contact you to make an appointment to meet the pet. The entire procedure is done very quickly if you provide accurate and complete information. We regret that we are not able to accept incomplete applications where all questions have not been answered.
