1. Sponsor-A-Pet

Sponsor-A-Pet enables a person to sponsor one of our adoptable dogs or cats while they wait for their new family. This makes a great gift for an animal lover! For a minimum donation of $25 per month, the sponsor’s name will be placed on the cat’s cage or dog’s kennel and the sponsor will receive a letter with a picture of their sponsored animal.
If the animal is adopted during the sponsor period, you will receive an update and choice of new animal to sponsor. We are happy to choose an animal in need for you, or you may pick the cat or a dog of your choice! Download a sponsorship form, see below.

2. "Best Friend" Sponsorship Program for Resident Shelter Cats

Would you sponsor one of our timid feral cats? Feral cats and kittens generally fear humans and their touch. Their past lives and experiences often justify that fear. Mother feral cats teach their kittens to fear and avoid humans. Many of the shelter's resident cats have never lived inside before, in regulated temperatures with soft comfortable hiding places and access to nutritious, tasty food. Some have imperfections like a missing eye, bent ear, or a damaged tail. Many are so shy that they are nearly impossible to place in a home. Others may have a manageable health condition that makes them "special needs." Our "Feral Room" is their sanctuary. Its comfort, cleanliness, hidey holes and toys are ensured by donations to our "Best Friends" cat sponsorship program. For a minimum donation of $60, you will receive a framed picture with information about your sponsored cat.

You can personally visit your sponsored dog or cat anytime during shelter hours. For more information regarding our sponsorship programs, call (609) 398-9500 x 4 or e-mail michelle@hsocnj.org.
