Liberty Humane Society is located in Jersey City, NJ and is one of the most popular and largest animal shelters in the surrounding area. Their tagline and philosophy is to "adopt local." Their goal is to help support the local community and help homeless, local pets find their forever homes.
LHS pours tons of effort into making pet services in their community more affordable and accessible so it is easier for local families to make pet care more feasible so these animals can stay in their homes. They host a variety of events and fundraisers throughout the year that are geared towards animal and dog education within the local community and focus on topics like how to be compassionate and properly care for animals. They also put on some great dog-friendly events, as well, that are perfect for spending some quality time with your fur baby and other local dog parents.
Another local adoption option (we like to rhyme!) is to adopt through Companion Animal Placement. CAP is a unique adoption program that has adoptable dogs and cats that have come from the streets, kill shelters, or once loving homes. Adoption days are held at the Hoboken Animal Hospital periodically throughout the year. Their mission is to make sure these precious animals find a safe, loving, and happy forever home.
