Liberty Humane Society

providing much needed services to the animals and people of Jersey City, Hoboken, and beyond

Donations accepted online

Here are a few words from Liberty Humane Society:

Sandwiched between the Turnpike, the Liberty Science Center and a sewage plant, our little facility (not much more than a converted garage) is filled to the brim with people who care about animals.  Our committed staff and amazing volunteers work hard every day to offer the best possible life for the animals unfortunate enough to lose their homes - until they can move on to their forever families.

Our little garage has served us well, but in order for us to go on providing much needed services to the animals and people of Jersey City, Hoboken, and beyond, we need to expand.  In addition to continuing to provide the housing, daily care, basic medical care, and adoption services we have in our current facility, the expanded building would contain additional housing for dogs and cats, an on-site veterinary clinic, offices, training facilities, and public spaces.

Just think of it.  A progressive shelter in an area that is easy to get to, with plenty of parking and room to grow.  Equally important, the shelter will continue to be managed by experts committed to ending animal overpopulation and irresponsible ownership.

Won't you join our efforts to make Jersey City a better place for homeless pets? Learn more about the shelter and its residents on our website.  If you value what we do and really want to support us, consider making a donation.  Together, we can make a difference.


SocialPakt was founded in September 2011 by husband and wife team, Greg Mullens & Bailey Schroeder.  Inspired by their adopted dog Charlie, and all the happiness he brought to their life, Greg & Bailey started SocialPakt as a way to help raise money and awareness for animal rescues all across the United States and Canada.

Each week SocialPakt launches new, limited edition apparel products in support of various rescues specializing in the protection and adoption of dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and even ferrets.  For each product that they sell, $6 get donated directly to one of their partner animal rescues.

Stretch & Scratch 

As a shelter volunteer, Joan Laisney saw scratch marks on cage walls and shelving by shelter cats' attempts to perform natural behaviors: stretching their muscles, scratching to clean their nails and scent mark with paws.

After months of testing, Joan designed a scratcher for caged cats that is sturdy, easy to install and affordable in a tight economy.

Every Shelter/Rescue of the Month will receive a case of these awesome scratchers!  Thank you Stretch & Scratch!
