Father John's Animal House is a Non Profit, NO KILL Facility, located in Northern New Jersey. Our primary goal is to temporarily house cats and dogs until we our able to adopt them out into their forever homes. We will be celebrating our 9th year here at the shelter in January. Every animal before adopted is given the best vet care and all the LOVE then can get. Before adoption, we do like to hold our cats and dogs for ten days to ensure their are no illnesses or concerns brewing. It also allows us to work with each individual animal in preparing them for their new home. Each animal is given ALL age appropriate vaccines, Deworming, FIV/FELV testing for the cats, HWT/ANA/LYME testing for the dogs, Bordatella for the dogs, Flea and Tick treatment, Heartworm Prevenative, Temperment Testing, and most importantly SPAY and NEUTERING before leaving our shelter. Right now we are trying to work on making our building more efficient.
As the number of the animals in our shelter increase, the number of space decreases. We are such a small facility that this makeover will give us what we need to rebuild our shelter and hopefully allow us to house more homeless animals. Because every animal needs a home and a family to love. We feel that we can ONLY close our doors when all abandoned or unwanted dogs and cats have found a loving home. Until that time, there is a true need for Father John's Animal House to continue it's work, to provide love, shelter, food, and medical care for all animals that come through it's doors. Please support Father John's Animal House.

A great place

posted 7 years ago

Father John's Animal house is a great place to work and also to adopt from. I have done both, worked for them for 6 years and have adopted 3 animals. Our staff is very caring and dedicated.

They go above and beyond. We are very lucky to have great volunteers.

Pros: great to work with

Cons: can use updates

What a great Place!

posted 7 years ago

Father John's is a wonderful place. We have a great group of employees and volunteers. They are willing to help out in any way necessary, fostering animals that are sick, or coming in at all hours to nurse animals back to health.

They attend and run all of the fundraisers that the shelter holds tthroughout the year. Even though we are small iin numbers we are big at heart.

Pros: caring & compassionate staff

Cons: building out dated
