Out Pets

The Jersey Shore Animal Center has been doing well. However, there is a larger concern of foster pets returning to adoption centers once COVID-19’s quarantine is lifted. “We are closed like the rest of adoption centers, but we are doing remote adoptions,” said Jersey Shore Animal Center Executive Director Laurie Fasinski.

“When the world is better and people go back to work, we will explode with foster animals,” said Fasinski. The animal lover that is Fasinski has worked in corporate New York for 22 years and has since moved back to New Jersey to live and dream in the world of helping animals.

In the last 15 years, Fasinski has seen a lot of good change in pet adoptions. The executive director continues to advocate for the betterment of these animals. Fasinski and her peers urge people to remember animals up for adoption have a history and a story that doesn’t start in the land of dreams; it’s usually quite the opposite. It is her dedication to the animals of Jersey Shore Animal Center that helps secure safe and loving livelihoods for their pets.

“It’s true,” said Fasinski. “If you do something you love, you never work a day in your life.” And with that, Fasinski not only encourages you to adopt a pet in dedication and love, but to live your life with the same passionate enthusiasm. “I love this. I’m so grateful, you don’t even know!”

Up for adoption stand Tiger and Dottie, two loving pets that Fasinski invites you to meet, love and, hopefully, take home.

“Tiger, this boy has been waiting for more than a year! Tiger is overlooked in our shelter.” This three-year-old boy sadly lost the only home he ever knew. His owner became homeless and had to go into a care facility. He was super scared when he first came in, understandably. With patience from our staff and volunteers he is coming around for attention and affection. We recommend a quiet home for Tiger with a cat experienced owner, someone with love and patience to give.

Dottie the dog
Dottie’s brother Boots was adopted right before Christmas and she has been wondering ever since when it will be her turn.  Dottie is approximately eight months old and 50 pounds

We know over time he will be a sweet companion and learn to trust again. Tiger has come a long way since being with us. He cannot wait to come out of his cage. He loves to rub against you and jump on your lap looking for affection. He would be OK with a calm small dog 5+. Tiger is wondering when it will be his turn.

Dottie says, “I am not just a pretty girl!” Why is this pup still here? Her brother Boots was adopted right before Christmas and she has been wondering ever since when it will be her turn.  Dottie is approximately eight months old and 50 pounds of affectionate and loving hound mix.  This girl would love a big fenced in yard for play time and plenty of walks.  If you think you have what Dottie needs please send us an application.
