After three years of working closely with Trenton Animal Control, Trenton Animals Rock, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit animal rescue organization, was awarded a contract to manage all animal welfare services for the Trenton animal shelter.
âWe are delighted to continue our work with the City of Trenton and the wonderful Animal Control Officers as we build on the incredible partnership we have formed. Incredible changes have already been made to the shelter and there are certainly many more to come, âsaid Danielle Gletow, Founder of Trenton Animals Rock. âOn behalf of myself, our Board of Directors and our great team, I want to especially thank Mayor Reed Gusciora and City Councilor Marge Caldwell-Wilson for their tireless support and sincere dedication to improvement. the quality of care for all the animals in the city.
The resolution was passed at a city council meeting on September 16. In addition to handling daily animal care, volunteering, and the foster and adoption program, Trenton Animals Rock also plans to bring new programs to the town shelter, including a pantry and a medical assistance for residents of Trenton. Extended hours will also be implemented at the refuge.
Trenton Animals Rock will also work closely with Trenton Cats Rescue to develop their excellent work and combine resources to ensure all animals receive exceptional care.
The Trenton Animal Shelter, which was declared a no-slaughter establishment in October 2020, thanks in large part to the work of TAR & TCR, serves around 500 dogs per year and more than 300 cats. Volunteers, foster families, adopters and other rescues are essential in keeping the shelter from filling up and people are encouraged to join the effort by applying on tarnj.org.
In addition to increasing the number of volunteers, Trenton Animals Rock plans to start hiring for several paid positions at the shelter and is encouraging Trenton residents to apply. The positions will be posted on their website at tarnj.org by September 24.
