Friends of Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter

Our mission is to assist and reduce the population of homeless companion animals in Southern Ocean County, and to promote shelter pet adoptions through publicity and public relations. We are a rescue organization that not only assists the Manahawkin Shelter but we also rescue homeless cats & kittens. We are active with TNR and maintaining feral cat communities.  To reach us go to our contact page: Contact Us
