Our Mission

Ending companion animal homelessness in Camden County through community awareness and responsible ownership.

About Us

Founded by the Camden County Board of Chosen Freeholders in 1997, the Camden County Animal Shelter (CCAS) has been fighting to reduce the overwhelming stray/unwanted animal population in its county. CCAS is an open admissions shelter and takes in over 6,000 companion animals from 17 municipalities in Camden County every year. In 2004, the Animal Welfare Society of Camden County, which currently runs the Camden County Animal Shelter, took over the shelter's activities. CCAS now does three major things: provide shelter for stray/unwanted animals, find those animals loving homes, and provide low-cost spay/neuter services.

CCAS is an open admissions shelter. Its 40+ full and part-time staff work hard to find loving homes for each and every animal that enters the shelter's doors. The 2011 Animal Intake and Disposition Survey shows that Camden County performs much better than its surrounding counties.

In addition to taking in animals, CCAS holds a multitude of events every year in order to help those looking to adopt to find the animal of their dreams, be it an adoption event or a full-blown gala. Lastly, CCAS provides Camden County with low-cost spay and neutering options. By providing the service at such a cheap cost, CCAS hopes to reduce the number of stray/unwanted animals in the county.
