Gloucester County Animal Shelter Has The Purr-fect Pet for YOUR FAMILY


(Clayton, NJ)—The Gloucester County Animal Shelter (GCAS) is open for animal lovers to walk through our kennels.

The shelter's adoption department is open Tuesday-Thursday 12 p.m.– 7 p.m. and Friday– Saturday 12 p.m.– 4 p.m. An approved application is not required to walk through the kennel, but we do encourage you to fill an application out prior to arrival just in case you would like to meet an animal available for adoption. 

“We have so many animals available for adoption at the shelter. From guinea pigs to kittens to dogs to cats, there’s a pet for everyone,” said Commissioner Director Robert M. Damminger.

Commissioner Damminger would like to remind residents that adoption fees are only $35.00 for dogs and cats 6 years and younger. Fees for animals 6 years and older fee is waived. 

Adoption includes spaying, neutering, all age-appropriate vaccines and dogs are heartworm tested and microchipped. 

The shelter is always accepting volunteer applications to help care for the animals. Individuals interested in volunteering at GCAS can find an application here: 

“Our volunteers assist with so many duties at the shelter. The animals love seeing our volunteers and taking walks with them around the grounds,” said Commissioner Deputy Director Frank J. DiMarco, liaison to the Animal Shelter.

“GCAS Volunteers go above and beyond at the shelter, and we’d like to extend a thank you to volunteer Krystal Gorman for treating our pups to a ‘pup cup’ from Twin Kiss in Clayton,” said Director Robert M. Damminger.
