The Old Bridge Animal Shelter, housed in the Old Bridge Municipal Complex, One Old Bridge Plaza (off Route 516) has many cats and dogs in need of a loving home. Rather than buying from a pet store, residents are encouraged to adopt a shelter pet.
The shelter is open from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m. seven days a week. To view many of the animals up for adoption, visit the shelter page on the Old Bridge Township website (OldBridge.com) for links to Petfinders, Facebook and the featured pets of the month. Residents should check back frequently, as the shelter is constantly getting in additional dogs and cats.
Donations of cat, kitten and dog food; dog and cat treats;cat litter; cotton towels; and paper towels are always needed and welcomed. For a list of items needed by the shelter, visit the website.
The shelter is always in need of volunteers and fosters to assist with the animals in its care. The shelter also welcomes school and scouts interested in visiting. For information on volunteering, the shelter’s wish list or to schedule a tour, contact Shelter Coordinator Karen Chen at (732) 721‑5600, ext. 6300 for information.
