Biographical Info

The Salem County Humane Society is a no kill shelter for homeless dogs and cats, located in Carneys Point, New Jersey. As a no kill shelter, we work hard to place animals in loving homes, but for those dogs and cats who aren’t able to attract a new family, they remain at the shelter permanently and they see all the volunteers as their family.

We operate strictly by donations and fundraisers, not by any local, state, or federal government funds, and our staff is 100% volunteers. We do not perform animal control duties; each township within Salem County has its own animal control officer.

All our animals at the shelter receive veterinary care including spaying and neutering. We never discriminate on the basis of health or age, and take in the abused, unwanted and abandoned companion animals that other human beings have forgotten. We hope people will become more aware of the plight of homeless animals as well as realizing the benefits of adopting an animal in need. We hope you will open your heart and home to one of these pets who is just waiting for the right person.

Young Life is a Christian ministry that reaches out to middle school, high school, and college students in all 50 of the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world. Our Mission is to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith. Since 1941, we have put caring adults into the lives of kids. We have walked into their world as mentors and friends. Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.
