Animal Shelter & Adoption Center

Our kennels are often populated by beautiful dogs and cats looking for a family to love. Saturday hours were also added to the Shelter to make it more convenient for those interested in adopting a dog or cat. For a complete list of prospective pets available for adoption, please call (609) 890-3550 or visit our Animal Shelter at 2100 Sylvan Avenue directly behind the Hamilton Public Works Office.
