Adoption Process

Submit an application if you are ready to adopt a dog or cat.

We require a home visit and place our dogs and cats only within 60 minutes from Chester, NJ.

You do not have to name a specific adoptable dog or adoptable cat at the time you submit your application.


​If you apply for a specific adoptable dog or cat we cannot promise he/she will be available or a good fit for your family at the time of your approval; but rest assured we will work diligently with you to find an amazing adoptable dog or cat that is 'PERFECT' for you.

Dogs: Adult dog adoption fee: $400, Senior dogs  8 yrs older: $215. 

All dogs are FULLY vetted by a licensed veterinarian; spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and receive vaccinations: Rabies - Distemper - Bordetella - Leptospirosis
 

Puppies: Adoption fee: $430 (up to 6 months/Lg breeds up to 10 months) 

- same vetting as adult dogs and age appropriate vaccines and spay/neuter

As a very small rescue we do our best to review your application within 3-5 days. You may email njshpetrescue@gmail.com to follow up on the status of your application.
