The Gloucester County Animal Shelter is seeking donations for their kittens

(Clayton, NJ)—The Gloucester County Animal Shelter is currently the foster home of 50 kittens that are waiting to go home with their forever family.

“Before we can adopt our kittens out to loving homes, they need to be a healthy size and weight,” explained Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger. “The shelter’s staff has been working around the clock to help them grow and find their family, but they are seeking donations to keep them growing.”

The shelter is currently looking for wet food, feeding syringes, miracle nipples, kitty litter and milk replacement. A full list of the shelter’s wish list is available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/177D10SW9D0TB/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_1?_encoding=UTF8&type=wishlist&fbclid=IwAR2QUbV2k_iLj65bz5M89y5zmJ7twmyQIOh7U-9ha7kxfdbcmenk6pDsRQY

At this time, the shelter has 13 cats, 3 dogs and 1 rabbit available for adoption. Kittens will be available once they are the required weight for adoption.

Residents interested in adopting an animal from the shelter can fill out an application online at www.gloucestercountynj.com. Adoptions are only available to Gloucester County residents at this time.

Animals at the shelter are currently available at a discounted adoption rate. The shelter is still discounting adoption fees for the animals at the shelter. Animals 6 years old and younger will have their adoption fees reduced to $35. Dogs and cats 6 years and older will have their adoption fees completely waived.

The shelter is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. while adoption hours are by appointment only Tuesday through Saturday 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

“In addition to accepting donations, the shelter is still utilizing its Pet Food Pantry to assist residents in need of food for their pets,” Freeholder Deputy Director Frank J. DiMarco, liaison to the shelter, said.

Any pet owner struggling to feed their pets due to the COVID-19 pandemic, can visit the Pet Food Pantry to pick up pet food for their dogs and cats.
