Trenton Animals Rock Hosts Open House and Community Mural Painting at City Animal Shelter

June 26, 2021

TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)–Trenton Animals Rock held an open house today along with a community mural painting of the Trenton Animal Shelter at 72 Escher Street. TAR is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that has worked with the City of Trenton since June 2018. It provides funding for medical care, training, and boarding for injured, abandoned, and abused dogs, and is the key entity connecting homeless dogs to households throughout New Jersey and beyond.

Since Trenton Animals Rock began managing the shelter’s behavior assessment and foster program in June 2019, the euthanasia rate at the shelter decreased from 47 percent to less than 10 percent, putting the shelter on track to become a no-kill shelter for the first time.

The Trenton Animal Shelter and Trenton Animals Rock recently announced free Parvo vaccines on Thursdays and Fridays for Trenton resident dogs after seeing an uptick in local cases.
