Dog Days of Summer at SAVE Shelter

We are fortunate in Montgomery to have a well-run private animal rescue shelter. SAVE – A Friend to Homeless Animals – has been rescuing and sheltering abandoned, abused, and homeless dogs and cats in the greater Princeton area since 1941. They provide life-saving medical treatment, food, enrichment and love to hundreds of animals every year.

Please consider the many benefits of adopting a cat or dog from SAVE. You can save the life of a homeless animal and enrich your life as well. By welcoming a homeless pet into your family, you will experience the special reward of saving a shelter animal and gain the unconditional love of a new forever friend.

The shelter, located at 1010 Route 601, Skillman NJ 08558, is currently open by appointment.  They welcome visitors to meet animals currently available for adoption or to volunteer.

SAVE is an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) animal shelter and does not receive funding at the local, state or federal levels.  Please tour our website and visit SAVE to learn more about the many ways you can support the shelter and help homeless animals.
