Poor animal shelter conditions in Newark
Hoboken411 reader Kimberly discovered some shocking information about a particular animal shelter in Newark, NJ – and hopes Hoboken can discontinue their relationship with them…
Associated Humane – Poorly run shelter
Apparently – the Associated Humane shelter in Newark is used by many municipalities (including Hoboken’s) as a depot for animals found or captured by the Animal Control Department.
For whatever reason, the shelter seems to be poorly run, understaffed and inhumane to the animals that are kept there, with god-awful conditions, dead animals, and a very low adoption rate.
Kimberly sent a letter to various individuals at City Hall and expects some kind of response from the City by tomorrow. She wanted to know what Hoboken’s relationship is with this shelter, and if we can find any better alternatives.
