Adoption Process & Information

Due to COVID-19, adoptions are are by appointment only. In order to schedule a visit to meet a particular dog or cat, you must download an application below, e-mail it to the shelter at info@srasnj.org – then call 908-725-0308 after 9:00am to schedule an appointment.

When you are interested in adopting a pet, you will be asked to fill out a pre-adoption application that will assist us in matching you with a pet that would best suit your lifestyle. Additionally, you will need to provide identification (driver’s license) and proof that you may have a pet at your residence (lease, mortgage statement, or tax bill). You must be at least 18 years of age in order to adopt a pet.
