  • 2. St Hubert's cares!

    by: SheltieWhisperer

    I adopted my cat, Toby, from St. Hubert's in North Branch when he was a kitten. I have nothing but praise for the good people at St. Hubert's - their compassion for the animals is second to none! Toby had been abandoned and was traumatized when I first saw him at the shelter. St. Hubert's wouldn't put him up for adoption until he was placed with a foster family for socialization and was ready for his "forever home". I'm so grateful for their efforts on behalf of Toby and all the other animals that come through their doors!

    Pros

    Knowledgable and caring staff

    Cons

    None

  • 4. I love this place!

    by: mstanton13

    I have volunteered here so have seen first-hand how caring the staff is. There is constant cleaning going on, and medical attention is provided whenever necessary. The animals are clean, healthy, and get plenty of human interaction. Great place to get a pet or support!

    the staff cares so much about each animal

    Cons

    wish they had more space

  • 7. Popular Pet Destination

    by: JaneakaJune

    St. Hubert's North Branch shelter is located on Route 22 West. Although a smaller shelter than the one in Madison, it is quite an active place and boy those cats and dogs up for adoption fly out of there. It is a very popular destination to find that perfect pet. Three cheers for St. Hubert's North Branch shelter!

    Pros

    Lots of friendly and knowledgeable staff members

    Cons

    Don't get to see the people there very often.

    Cons

    I can't think of one!

  • 9. Good shelter

    by: jgk2002

    I spent some time as a Canine Coach at this shelter and have nothing but nice things to say about the staff and the facility. The animals are well cared for and great care is taken to place both cats and dogs in good, appropriate homes. I recommend a visit here if you are in Somerset County and looking for a pet.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, very clean

    Cons

    none

  • 10. St. Huberts is the best

    by: mak111

    Lots of love at this shelter for any animal.

    Pros

    Sister shelter to the one in Madison

    Cons

    A bit smaller than the other shelter

  • 11. Nice small shelter with great animals

    by: ladyd

    This is such a nice shelter with very friendly people working there. Always have many pretty cats an dogs looking for homes. They do animal control for many towns in Somerset and Hunterdon counties which is very hard and expensive.

    Pros

    Good customer service

    Cons

    need more space

  • 12. A smaller version of the main shelter

    by: Klhavens72

    This smaller shelter is a nice place for people from Somerset County to find a pet. The kennel is spotless and they do a great job matching people with pets. They have nice grounds in back so that the dogs get plenty of exercise.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, very clean

    Cons

    none

  • 13. Hubies II

    A second, smaller facility to the center in Madison, but no less dedicated to the cause. Thank you.

    Just as dedicated

    Cons

    None

  • 14. Great shelter

    by: goldtoo

    While not as large as the main facility in Madison, North Branch is a great facility. The staff is knowledgeable, the facility is clean, and the main objective of all is to find their dogs and cats forever homes.

    Pros

    location

    Cons

    none

  • 15. smaller but just as good

    by: dbkuhn

    This is a spotless facility. Staff is very careful about matching animals and people. Dogs are exercised daily by Canine Coaches. Thi shelter serves a more southern location in NJ than the Madison site. Looking for a pet? Go here if nothing in Madison suits you.

    Pros

    Nice small shelter

    Cons

    none

  • 16. Best shelter ever!

    by: eileen828

    We adopted our dogs from there years ago, and I just recently started voluteering. Everybody is so helpful and caring about the animals - can't say enough about them all! St. Hubert's is able to adopt out so many animals, that they have cooperative relationships with shelters all over the Eastern US and Puerto Rico to take in additional dogs so they can find their forever homes. How many other shelters can provide that kind of service to unwanted pets?

    Pros

    variety of programs and services to pets and owners

    Cons

    need a bigger space to accomodate the big hearts there!

  • 17. St. Hubert's rocks

    by: annievee

    Great shelter. I adopted my second dog from here and they were very careful to screen us properly, because they care about the dogs and the success of the adoption. They have a system for rating the dog on personality and matching with owner's preferences. They don't just house the animals; they work with them to improve their disposition and manners, if needed, while in their care. They make sure all pets get any needed medical care and they're kept very clean and healthy. Their parent shelter in Madison offers all kinds of training and community programs, so if you're not familiar with having a pet, there are plenty of resources for learning with other pet owners. Friendly staff!

    Pros

    high quality shelter, great adoption management

    Cons

    can't think of any

  • 18. They Care

    by: Lin1putt

    Pros

    Very helpful and information to help all involved!

    Cons

    None

  • 23. This is where we found our Captain

    by: Captainswoman

    We adopted from the North Branch facility almost 4 years ago. When we run into staff at St. Hubert's events in Madison, they still remember Captain, even though he was only there a couple of days before we adopted him. They have the most caring and professional staff. We cannot say enough good things about St. Hubert's and their North Branch facility.

    Pros

    Excellent place to find the best pets!

    Cons

    Small meet and greet areas

  • 29. St. Hubert's is great!!!

    by: runawaysock

    St. Hubert's is a great place!! If you are looking for a dog, you should adopt a dog from there. Why? The staff lets the dogs get used to humans so the dog is not afraid of humans when it first meets the human. St. Hubert's rocks!!

    Pros

    Caring staff

    Cons

    None!!!!!!

  • 30. A smaller version of the main shelter

    by: Snowbecker

    St. Hubert's has a wonderful all-around reputation. They should be the first shelter choice when adopting a pet.

    Need more space for canine coaches

  • 31. ACO Training

    Cons

    nothing

  • 32. Wonderful Shelter

    by: mabaer

    This is a wonderful, small shelter, part of St. Hubert's in Madison. Nice staff. They work very hard keeping a clean, well run kennel trying to get the animals back out into good homes. They are always looking for more volunteers to help clean. They have a wonderful Feline Friends program of people who come and spend time socializing and petting the cats.

    Pros

    Caring, knowledgeable

    Cons

    needs more help

  • 33. Great Place

  • 34. Top Notch in Every Way

    by: CarolynCurrey

    This satellite of St. Hubert's in Madison, does everything they can with the small amount of space they have. The staff is extremely caring, knowledgeable and an asset to the community.

    Pros

    The staff is caring, knowledgeable and devoted

    Cons

    Need for more volunteers

  • 35. Professional and Caring Staff

    by: MTrezza

    This is a satellite facility and smaller that the main campus in Madison, N.J. The staff is equally as caring and intellegent in both facilities. I highly recommend St. Hubert's as the shelter of choice. You will definitely get a pet that matches your lifestyle. Also, they have a behavior staff that can help you with any problems after adoption.

    Pros

    Everyone cares about the animals and are extremely caring about who the animals go to

    Cons

    Could use an addition since they are so good with the animals

  • 39. St. Hubert's Somerset

    by: DDRau

    Several of my cats have been adopted from this branch of St. Hubert's. While the shelter has been a bit "modernized" over the years, winning the make-over contest could definitely help the cattery.

    Pros

    Great Staff, good visible location

    Cons

    small cattery
