We're resilient. When devastation strikes, people like us in New Jersey pick ourselves up, dust off and start again. Our animal friends do the same. Thankfully, with your support, the Jersey Shore Animal Center is here to help. Shadow, a black shepherd with soulful brown eyes, was rescued from the streets of Newark.

She was hungry, scared and alone. Repeatedly attacked by other stray dogs who stole what little food she could find, Shadow became a loner. It's no surprise that she doesn't like other dogs today. She's also scared to let anyone near her food dish. She'd spent so long being painfully hungry on the streets. Shadow needs a special home. She's already been returned once.

Can you help us care for Shadow while we find her a home by making a gift? You can even spread the word that she's available for adoption. She will need a home with adults only and no other pets. There's got to be someone who can love her. She's inseparable from her tennis ball and loves to play fetch.

Our work isn't easy -- sometimes it's really hard -- but it's worth it. You help save lives. Our hard work has paid off in another important way too. After the destruction from Hurricane Sandy, our team at the Jersey Shore Animal Center was in full force to get back this event -- the Beach to Bay 5K Run/Walk for the Animals -- that has helped countless animals at the JSAC.

This is great news for the animals in our community. Your support along with the support of those participating is this race is vital in providing the resources to care for abused and abandoned pets.

Whether you run or not, please make a gift today. Your support saves lives! On behalf of the animals whose lives will be saved by your generosity and involvement, we thank you so much!

 WANTED! Extra-special Forever Family for Dewey!!

 Poor Dewey came to us in March of 2014 when he was found hanging out in the cold with no place to call his own. A real character with an inquisitive nature and a “take-charge” attitude, Dewey soon became a favorite with staff and volunteers alike. Sadly, not long after he arrived, he developed a case of painful swollen lips. Our vet diagnosed him with a food allergy, and he has been on a special diet ever since. His condition seems to be under control now, though he does have the occasional flare-up whenever he’s able to sneak food from one of the other cats. Due to his special needs as well as our great affection for him, we made Dewey one of our resident cats and he has enjoyed his time here with the JSAC staff. If you’ve visited the shelter, you may have even seen him lounging in the lobby or stretched out on top of the desk. Even though our shelter staff devotedly takes great care of our resident cats, Dewey needs to find a home to call his own. A relatively young and energetic boy, he would particularly enjoy a family who will allow him to run and play, and who will also be attentive to his special dietary needs. Please consider opening your heart and home to this very special boy. He just might be the brand new love of your life!

If you adopt this handsome man, we will waiver the adoption fee!

Holly’s story is a sad one… Adopted from us as a kitten, she lived in an RV with her family until they moved to a place that didn’t allow cats. When she was returned to us, she had a urinary tract infection that her owners had left untreated.
