Camden County Animal Shelter Reaches New Record

Camden County Animal Shelter has reason celebrate after a record-breaking year of saving thousands of furry lives.

Last year, the SJ organization was the only open-admission animal shelter in the region to achieve a 92 percent save rate for dogs and 91 percent save rate for cats.

The increase is a major jump from its 2009 save rates of 73 percent for dogs and 46 for cats – an accomplishment the shelter attributes to a 25 percent bump in volunteers, implementing foster care programs, and an ordinance aimed to lower populations of stray and feral cates.

Over the past year, the shelter transferred more than 1,500 pets to other agencies and oversaw more than 2,500 adoptions of pets into their fur-ever homes.
