Signs Removed at Former JAC Shelter

Signs for the former Jersey Animal Coalition (JAC) shelter in South Orange were recently removed, including on the Department of Public Works driveway and on Walton Road. 

When visited the shelter on November 12, a sign was posted on the front door reading "Our shelter is now closed. All animals formerly in the shelter are safe and have been placed in caring homes/facilities", adding that "our security cameras are in operation and Police Department has been advised". However, the sign was removed as of the following day.

The JAC moved out of the building on November 11th after occupying the building for nearly 10 years. Adoptions were concluded in October.

Representatives from the Village of South Orange and Jersey Animal Coalition did not respond to our requests for comment.
