Newark Pet Wellness Day March 26th!

March 3, 2022


AHS Newark’s first Public Wellness Day was Successful day for all Involved


NEWARK, NEW JERSEY — Associated Humane Societies Newark Shelter hosted their very first Public Wellness Day for the citizens of Newark and their pets on March 26th. Thanks to Merck, People for Animals (PFA), and the PetcoLove Foundation we were able to provide free vaccinations and microchips to over 160 animals in our community. Doors opened at 9am and the line was almost immediately wrapped around the corner onto Frelinghuysen Avenue.

“The tremendous response to our Community Wellness Day further demonstrates the need for a permanent veterinary wellness center to serve the residents of Newark. Construction of such a facility will start in early summer and we expect to have it completed in early 2023. In the meantime, we will continue to have two additional Community Wellness Days later this year.” says Jerry Rosenthal, CEO of Associated Humane Societies.

AHS staff and volunteers organized people and their pets to swiftly move through the clinic. Shelter Veterinarians and Vet Techs worked diligently to be sure that each and every animal was examined and that no residents were turned away. The Associated Humane Societies is thrilled to be able to provide such a needed service to our community and become a cornerstone for animal welfare in our city. 

Associated Humane Societies is breaking ground in late 2022 to open a brick-and-mortar wellness clinic at the shelter located on Evergreen Avenue. For more information on how you can help, please contact
