Animal Outreach is a 501(c)(3) organization of dedicated individuals who work every day to help animals throughout our South Jersey communities. We assist owners in need, sponsor strays, foster cats, kittens, dogs and puppies awaiting adoption, and provide humane education to the public.
In addition, Animal Outreach has purchased a parcel of land on which to build a no-kill shelter and sanctuary. Shelter plans and a rendering can be viewed here.

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.
