Atlantic County Animal Shelter

240 Old Turnpike, Pleasantville, NJ 08232, United States

Adoption policy

The Atlantic County Animal Shelter was developed in 1995 as a response to the needs of the municipalities for a regional animal control facility. Since its opening, the number of intakes consisting of stray, unwanted and abused animals has drastically decreased by 50 percent. This achievement is attributed to the implementation of several programs, including all animals being spayed or neutered prior to adoption and early-age spay and neuter services. The primary goal of the Animal Shelter is to reunite lost pets with their owners and to facilitate meaningful adoptions that benefit both pets and owners. Community outreach programs and free canine obedience classes help support adopters and further promote responsible pet ownership. Visit to learn more.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
