Shelter Our Pets is an all-volunteer nonprofit corporation serving New Jersey and beyond. Our mission is to provide a safe haven for the pets of victims of domestic violence who are fleeing their abusive situations. Shelter Our Pets assists people seeking safety from violence by providing alternatives to giving up a beloved pet, leaving a pet behind in a potentially dangerous situation or continuing to subject themselves and their pets to abuse.
Shelter Our Pets provides a specialized service, offering loving care and shelter to pets of abuse victims, either with a foster family or at an area kennel, until they can be reunited with their owners. Our long-term vision is to create housing where abuse survivors can reside with their pets while they rebuild their lives. Your donation will help us make the world a safer place for abuse victims and their pets.
