Located at the Municipal Complex, the Edison Animal Shelter serves Metuchen, Piscataway, Dunellen, Scotch Plains, and Edison. If you have lost a pet or are looking for a new pet, please call or visit the shelter. Please note that the selection of dogs and cats available for adoption change on a daily basis. Visit the shelter to confirm availability of the pet you are interested in. The shelter always has a great selection of companions, and the purr-fect one is probably waiting just for you.

Make pet adoption your first option for the millions of wonderful animals awaiting adoption at independent, community shelters
