45 Years – 45 Projects

Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter is proud to celebrate 45 years of life-saving care for homeless pets. To celebrate what we have accomplished and to kick off another 45 (plus) years, we are looking to undertake 45 projects to help revitalize our little building that does so much! We are looking for individuals, skilled laborers, scout troops, and businesses who can help us financially or physically ensure that we can continue to care for our dogs and cats in the best possible environment! If you or someone you know, can help with all or part of one or more of these projects, simply contact Abby at 973-386-0068 or abby@njshelter.org!
