Camden County Animal Shelter rings in the New Year with new adoption center for the animals. Camden County Animal Shelter Board of Freeholders proudly announces the completion of a $1.5 million expansion that increases capacity and provides more living and recreational space for cats and dogs.
The improvements to the shelter include a new adoption center that serves as the public side of the facility. The expansion also includes a designated area where residents can interact with and adopt pets.
The new adoption center has glass-walled acquaintance rooms, instead of a traditional shelter setting with animals in cages, to encourage shorter shelter stays for adoptable animals. With the new expansion, room for an additional 35 dogs and 50 cats is available.
The new kennels feature more living space for the dogs as well as access to individualized play yards for them to enjoy the outdoors. The cats are roomed in glass- walled towers that give each cat space to exercise, play, and greet visitors as they enter the building.
In the new lobby, private visitation rooms are provided for potential adopters to become better acquainted with shelter pets during their visitation giving the cat or dog the best opportunity to show off their personality. This will also enable shelter staff to have a conversation about the pet's history and to find the best match for the adopter.
Outside of the expansion a fenced in play yard has been erected as new exercise and play area. Dogs can get outside to meet and greet the public off the leash. This will give adopters a chance to play and interact with the dogs and see if they have the perfect pet for them.
The shelter expansion will help Camden County Animal Shelter achieve its vision of healthier, happy animals going into loving permanent homes.
