It’s a Dog’s Life Rescue of New Jersey is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue located in Cream Ridge, New Jersey.  Our mission is to remove animals from abusive or non-sustainable situations and find them their forever homes. We rescue adoptable dogs and cats from city shelters or accept them from families that can no longer care for them. We are proud of our history of matching the right pet with the right person or family. 

All animals receive an intake examination by a licensed veterinarian. All animals are vaccinated upon intake as appropriate.  A scan for a microchip is performed if warranted. We ensure that all animals receive a thorough behavioral assessment prior to being approved for adoption. All animals will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and chipped prior to adoption.

Please take a look at the animals we currently have for adoption. If you are looking to adopt and don't see the right pet companion on our site, please don't hesitate to contact us with a bit about what you're looking for in a pet. There is never a shortage of adoptable pets needing homes and we would gladly help you in your search. And, please consider fostering. It is a terrific way to help a dog in need while also helping yourself find the right pet for you. 

Our adoption fees are extremely reasonable. All monies received go toward the rescue of animals. Nobody in our rescue receives a salary.
