Don't ever go to the secaucus animal shelter!!!

posted 3 years ago

DON'T EVER GO TO THIS HORRIBLE PLACE!!! You WILL be sorry! Despicable, Rude, Interrogators will be there. Why, they are their own worst enemies. I went there to adopt a pet recently & was put through the "3rd Degree". Papers to fill out, wasted time, aggravation, insolent staff, filthy dirty papers with fecal animal waste all over them. Imagine, having dog poop over your hands after filling out the application. To make matters worse, they contact the vet, other references & make a very POOR decision. The woman who is the cretin, imbecile who does this hides behind the scenes, makes you wait for days & forces you to go elsewhere. While these characters were taking up my time I went to another source to obtain a pet. NEVER AGAIN! Ironic isn't it? How, at first glance, the place appears to be OK but then the real truth comes out like a venomous snake upon you! Personally, I feel that a change of staff is necessary because they waste prospective adopters time & effort. I was "declined" by the Secaucus Screwballs because my last vet was not good enough for them. They happen to know the guy & guess they didn't like him. Well, maybe he doesn't like them either & for good reason. They could have given me the pet I wanted & relieved the shelter of another animal thereby making room for more. But no, they insist on senseless procedures that lead to nowhere except to never return to them for any reason.

Pros: NONE

Cons: Despicable staff, "Gestapo Like" Interrogation, Too Extensive Background Checking, Time Wasters, Feral Animals Outside Everwhere

Friendly staff, small, need supplies

posted 4 years ago

My pet and I stopped by the shelter unannounced to drop off donations and the folks we met were very nice and appreciative. It's a small shelter and in need of supplies. They should take a cue from Liberty Humane Society and promote on social networks, run a supply drive and create a wish list on No one I spoke with had even heard of it. On a different note, the dog park in front was nice and had agility equipment.

Pros: Friendly staff, dog park in front

Cons: A bit rundown, need supplies
