Prior to the establishment of the Jersey Shore Animal Foundation, the founding members belonged to various animal groups and were instrumental in the set-up, care and organization of an emergency pet shelter for evacuees in NJ during Hurricane Sandy. The best part was helping to coordinate rescue missions and reuniting displaced owners with their pets. It was at this time that the need for the Jersey Shore Animal Foundation was identified. It seemed that each individual animal group was working independently and there was no unified movement allowing groups to combine efforts and resources to work together. Using our many years of experience in the animal industry and our established network of resources, our hope is that the Jersey Shore Animal Foundation can link various animal groups, rescues and organizations with those in need so that resources can be shared for the betterment of the animals in any situation.
The Jersey Shore Animal Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
The Jersey Shore Animal Foundation’s mission is to assist animals; pet owners and animal related charities in New Jersey with the resources needed to ensure the health and well being of animals across the state. In addition to the directly funded activities performed by the Jersey Shore Animal Foundation, it is also our goal to assist other 501c3 Animal related charities through providing education, resources, networking opportunities and funding in times of need.
