Communities thoroughout the United States are confronted with finding solutions for the large numbers of homeless pets. As a tourist and retirement destination CMC faces additional unique challenges. In short there are many adoptable animals and relatively few homes to absorb them. The Cape May County Animal Shelter will seek to ensure the humane treatment of all animals within the county and to foster a spirit of cooperation between the various organizations working on behalf of animals.
To confront these circumstances the CMCAS will initiate a three pronged plan. First CMCAS will support extensive spay/neuter programs to reduce the number of homeless animals. Second CMCAS will institute aggressive adoption policies. Third CMCAS will implement educational programs for responsible pet guardianship.
