ELIZABETH, NJ – The Elizabeth Shelter is over capacity for cats and dogs, and several animals are at risk for euthanasia. Residents interested in adopting a kitten, cat, or dog can go to the shelter at 518 Trenton Avenue, Elizabeth, 908-820-4242. There is a $10 fee. Those wishing to adopt need to prove they can take care of the animal.

Anyone interested in sheltering a cat or dog should contact Lynda Drumm at 908-265-6255.

The shelter has reported receiving a multitude of cats and kittens. Two pit mix dogs, Hugo and Tiger, are reported to be exceptional and about to be euthanatized.   There is also a Shepard mix.

Said Lorraine Jakubowski, of Best Friend Dog & Animal Adoption, “I am asking if you could open up your hearts and foster for Best Friend or even adopt.  This is very serious as it is the holiday weekend and the shelter is over capacity.  It will go a long way in making a difference in the animals’ lives.   They are friendly and should not have to die.”
