Our proprietary foster dog kennel is located in Hopewell Township, NJ and is staffed by a Kennel Manager, Program Director and 4 part-time kennel attendants. Animals are cared for and supervised for a total of 12 hours over the course of day and evening shifts. Enrichment is provided to the dogs by volunteer dog walkers who augment their 4 trips outside daily with additional walks and "field trips" to nearby Lambertville.
Routine care for our animals is provided by the staff veterinarians at Planned Pethood. Services include a routine medical exam, age-appropriate distemper and rabies vaccinations, de-worming, flea and tick preventatives, leukemia and FIV testing for cats and microchipping for dogs. We routinely accept animals in immediate need of skilled veterinary care due to horrific abuse, neglect or illness.
rehabilitation & foster care
Many of our animals need extended stays in foster care to allow them time to heal from both physical and psychological injuries. There is no arbitrary time limit on the length of stay and all animals remain with us until adopted, unless a physical infirmity is so severe that it would be inhumane to prolong the suffering of the animal. Animals with unrelenting aggression, that remain unsuitable for adoption may not be sheltered indefinitely. We want our adopted animals to be shining ambassadors for rescued pets.
