Secaucus Animal Shelter rescues abandoned, abused, and injured animals. Every animal in their care is rehabilitated, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and found a loving, adoptive home. They believe the most effective way to address the problem of abandoned animals is to raise public awareness of responsible pet ownership.
