Pets are a lifetime commitment, and we know sometimes things get tough.

If you are struggling to handle a situation with your pet, LHS may be able to help by providing access to resources that make the environment better for you and your family.  For information about these services, please contact the shelter. 

Surrendering a pet to a shelter should be a last resort. We encourage you to contact your friends, relatives, and networks first, in order to privately rehome your pet into a loving home. LHS accepts animals from Jersey City, Hoboken, and Bayonne into its adoption program by appointment if space and resources allow. Please be prepared for a significant wait period. Rehoming owned animals is a service we offer to our community whenever we are able.

As of March 26th, 2017 LHS has a limited number of surrender appointments available for dogs under 25 pounds. Please use the web contact form to send us basic animal details and schedule a time to speak with an LHS staff member.
