Welcome to Shore Saves!

We are a non-profit animal rescue organization based in Central New Jersey. Our mission is to provide care, comfort, and compassion to animals in need while finding them loving homes and families.

100% volunteer-run.

Our founders have been volunteering with animals for decades. Shore Saves was founded on our like-minded dedication to providing dogs in need with food, shelter, veterinary care, training, and love until we can find them the right forever family.

100% donor-funded.

Every dollar Shore Saves receives helps an animal in need. We depend on generous donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations to fund our operations. In addition to rent and utilities, our expenses include veterinary care, food, leashes and collars.

Fostering is a critical part of saving these dogs lives. We'll work together to place the right kind of dog (size, age, temperament) in your home. Fostering is free - we'll provide you with all the supplies you need - all we need from you is compassion,. Visit the 'fosters' tab of our website to learn more.

Click the 'adopt' tab to e-meet dogs currently available for adoption! We rescue male and female dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds. Fill out an application if you're looking for something in particular and we'll reach out to you when we think we have a good fit for you to meet with.
