The Associated Humane Societies and the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals are two of the largest and oldest animal protection organizations in the state. Both organizations run several chapters in New Jersey and are affiliated with other animal shelters and animal rescue groups that offer adoptable puppies.
The Associated Humane Societies is the largest animal sheltering system in New Jersey, with three shelters located in Newark, Tinton Falls and Forked River. Each shelter provides a list of all adoptable puppies and dogs under its care as well as information such as history, age, location and the dog's characteristics. The shelters' adoption pages also show if the dog or puppy has special needs or is best suited to a home without other pets. Adoption fees include the cost of spaying or neutering the dog, inoculation fees and microchip services fees.
The New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is the second-oldest Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in the country. Its official website provides links to over 50 rescue groups, humane society chapters and animal shelters in New Jersey. Adoptable puppies are found on each of the affiliated websites. Some organizations affiliated with the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals include the Animal Adoption Center in Camden County and Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City.
