  • 1. Wonderfu; Shelter

    by: shmook08

    I think that this is a wonderful shelter and anyone looking to adopt, they should come here. The staff is so friendly and whenever I e-mail them about a dog I get a e-mail back that night or in a dog or two. Their animals are well kept and the cages are nice and sanitary.

    Pros

    Can and Will house every dog.

    Cons

    There are so many dogs not everyone will get a home.

  • 2. CCAS works hard to help homeless animals

    by: fatliver

    This animal shelter goes above and beyond to help animals which have been displaced find safe and loving homes. they receive more animals than they have room for, but have many dedicated fosters that provide temp placement until they move on to their forever homes.\r\n\r\nI applaud all the efforts made by the staff and volunteers.\r\n

    Pros

    Staff & Volunteers extend beyond the norm to help animals in their care find forever homes and or rescues

    Cons

    shelter receives more animals than there are room for, so they are constantly fighting an uphill battle.

  • 3. Great Job!

    by: Lamgen

    Run by caring people who LOVE animals

    Pros

    Wonderful Staff

    Cons

    Building in need of repair-overcrowding a problem.

  • 4. Truly Care About the Animals!

    by: twentypaws

    It's an honor to be associated with this shelter as a foster parent. They are the best shelter/rescue I've dealt with so far, and go the extra mile to make sure as few dogs and cats as possible have to be euthanized. I drive 90 miles one way just to work with and foster for this shelter!

    Pros

    hardworking, caring, dedicated, friendly

    Cons

    none!

  • 5. Great shelter and great people

    by: nms519

    I adopted my dog from here in Feb. and the staff was very helpful and easy to work with. While the first dog I saw online was not available and the second was not good with cats as stated, the third time was a charm. I'm very glad to have worked with them and they have had good follow up with me.

    Pros

    Super Friendly

    Cons

    Website not up to date

  • 6. Wonderful Shelter, helpful volunteers

    by: jamiee1024

    My husband and I visited the shelter and adopted an dalmation. Although he didn't work out for our family, I have nothing but praise for the staff. they were helpful, attentive, and compassionate through the entire ordeal. The shelter was always clean, and well maintained. I was dissapointed that we weren't able to recieve our adopition fee back, since we were mislead in the behaviors of this dog, but Im happy knowing it went to help so many other animals who need a loving home. Kudos to the staff at CCASNJ

    Pros

    helpful staff, clean environment

    Cons

    adoption policy is too harsh

  • 7. Great Shelter, Great Staff

    by: CalvinsMom

    We got our little Calvin from this shelter and we couldn't be more happy with him. Heather helped us with our initial dog meet and though our other dog is now deceased, the staff members were a great help.\r\n\r\nThey took great care of our Calvin while he was there and we are grateful.

    Pros

    Heather Speeks is awesome!

    Cons

    limited space

    Cons

    Still considered a kill shelter.

  • 9. Camden County Shelter - loving staff with the dogs

    by: litlman

    The Camden County shelter serves too many municipalities with loving care to find homes for unwanted, surrendered and stray animals. The efforts to find homes are heroic! There is a loving staff and a strong cadre of volunteers - but not enough. There also needs to be a push for more space in this shelter. When it was built, it was not designed to accomodate enough animals - it cannot keep pace! Give generously to this shelter to continue serving and to expand its space to welcome every animal who enters its doors!

    Pros

    Very loving staff

    Cons

    Too few staff, needs more volunteers!

  • 10. Great Spay/Neuter Clinics

    by: MaureenKoplow

    CCAS holds monthly spay/neuter clinics for area cats. Every month, over 100 cats are fixed so they will never contribute to the homeless population. Their caretakers are thrilled with the wonderful program, and the community benefits as well. The shelter also has an ongoing low-cost spay/neuter program that takes care of cats and dogs. Marvelous!

    Pros

    Very caring volunteers at the clinics

    Cons

    I wish more people were aware of the program so they could participate

  • 11. Good place.

    Cons
