MADISON, NJ - The Madison animal shelter remains open during the COVID-19 pandemic. The shelter is urging community members to help shelter animals in need through fostering or adopting.

The shelter continues their disinfecting protocols and measures to ensure the safety of the animals, staff, volunteers and potential adopters. 

 “It’s critical that we get pets out of the shelter and into homes at this time so we’ll be prepared to welcome the at-risk pets who are going to need us later,” said Becky Burton, St. Hubert’s Director of Operations. “If you’ve been considering adopting and are working or schooling at home now, it’s the perfect time. And best of all, you don’t need to observe social distancing with a pet!”
