Our Story

Originally founded in 1891 by a group of concerned citizens, our journey began as an organized chapter of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children and Animals (SPCCA).
The turn of the century brought sweeping changes to child protection as the government stepped up to create public agencies for the task, and by 1915 our society was out of child protection business. At that point, we became formally organized and received our charter from the state of New Jersey to become the humane law enforcement entity in Cumberland County for the prevention of cruelty to animals.

Adopt a Pet

The South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter is committed to placing our animals in safe, loving homes. As a potential adopter, you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire, speak with one of our adoption counselors and meet with the pet you are interested in. Small children and current pets may be asked to meet with the animal before sending him home.
