This page is dedicated to the many animals available for adoption at our Newark shelter., as well as, related animal welfare issues.
AHS-Newark is a non-profit, humane society serving numerous counties in the state. We provide animal control services, humane education & animal adoption/surrender services & animal cruelty investigations. We have a veterinary clinic on premises to treat client & shelter animals. We also operate a low cost Mobile Spay/Neuter van.
We are opened seven days a week from 9:00am-6:00pm. Our adoption hours are 12:00-5:00 seven days a week. All interested parties must complete an adoption application as the first step in the adoption process. There is a fee of $110.00 for a mixed breed and $155.00 and up for a purebred. An altering fee is $85.00 for a male and $95.00 for a female and up (depending on weight) will be added to the adoption fee. The animal will receive all shots, microchip identification, flea/tick treatment, collar and leash. If you would like to take your new pet to your own vet for altering, we require a $200.00 deposit for dogs and a $100.00 deposit for cats. These deposit will be fully refunded once we receive proof of altering from your veterinarian. All prospective adopters must present a valid driver's license, proof of home ownership or, if you are a renter, a copy of your lease or notarized letter from your landlord stating that pets are allowed on the premises.
We accept all major credit cards, debit cards and cash. No checks will be accepted.
