This past Saturday, Hamilton Township helped to find some loving pets new homes as it ‘cleared the shelter.’

As part of a “Clear the Shelters” Day effort along with NBC 10 (Philadelphia) and Telemundo 62, the Hamilton Township Animal Shelter joined with nearly 30 animal shelters in the greater Philadelphia and South/Central Jersey region this past Saturday to promote the adoption of shelter animals. 

Hamilton’s participation in the cause led to the adoption over 26 shelter cats and dogs, with future adoptions likely to come thanks to the effort.   

“Not only were we successful in finding new homes for over 26 loving shelter pets, but Hamilton’s participation in the ‘clear the shelters’ effort helped us to publicize our animal shelter, which I am confident will lead to more pet adoptions in the future,” says Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede.   

Hamilton residents who may be interested in the adoption of a loving pet companion  can visit www.HamiltonNJ.com/Pets4Adoption or stop by the Hamilton Township Animal Shelter (located at 2100 Sylvan Avenue, Hamilton, NJ 08610 – behind the Hamilton Township Department of Public Works Building) during its normal hours of operation (Mondays – Thursdays from 10 am - 3 pm, Fridays from 1 pm - 3 pm or Saturday from 10 am - 3 pm).
