Who We Are
Animal Outreach is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping the abused, abandoned, and neglected animals of Cape May County and beyond.  Animal Outreach (AO) began as a fostering network in 1998, and we still use our foster homes to rehabilitate and care for animals in need.  

There is a tremendous need for our services, and we hope to continue our mission well into the future.  We are a small operation with a big heart and bigger plans.  And the community is behind us in reaching our goals.  We hope you can help us with our commitment to the animals.  Please contact us (609-898-1738).  Let us know how you can help!

Come Visit Us
... at 600 Park Boulevard, Unit 3, in West Cape May. Our hours are currently Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12-4. In season our hours are more frequent but we always will make time by appointment.  Please call us if you'd like to meet one of our furry friends at a time that we are not open to the public.

Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide shelter, care and love for the unwanted, abused and/or abandoned animals of Cape May County. We include in our mission rescuing animals from surrounding county and state shelters that are slated for euthanasia. Animal Outreach strongly endorses spay and neutering programs and is committed to helping educate our community in responsible pet ownership. We are a “no kill” organization. Our adoption program has helped to greatly reduce the numbers of homeless animals in our county. We encourage cooperation between municipal and private shelters to coordinate efforts to eliminate the tragedy of animal homelessness.
