Pretty Annie and 34 other dogs from Louisiana SPCA were welcomed at the Woodland Avenue shelter.
With Hurricane Isaac approaching New Orleans, the Louisiana SPCA went into hurricane preparation mode. It closed to the public and moved many of its animals to SPCA of Texas in Dallas. It so happened that a shipment of 35 dogs already was scheduled to leave the path of the storm, which badly flooded areas surrounding New Orleans and took out power to parts of the city. The canines were scheduled to be sent to St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center as part of a program that transfers animals from areas struggling to control overpopulation to places where they are more likely to be adopted. The animals arrived Wednesday morning at the shelter on Woodland Avenue in Chatham Township, known as St. Hubert's Madison shelter. St. Hubert's is open …

Buddy Valastro brought treats for shelter pets to party celebrating 20 million adoptions facilitated by Petfinder.
St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center on Woodland Road played host to an episode of "Cake Boss" on Saturday, with members of the show's cast and crew filming scenes for an episode celebrating 20 million adoptions facilitated by Petfinder, an online database of animals who need homes. The episode is expected to air sometime this fall on TLC. St. Hubert's Vice President Nora Parker said the shelter was a natural place to hold the party because St. Hubert's was one of the first organizations to use Petfinder, which was founded in New Jersey in 1996. Petfinder was acquired by Discovery Communications, the same company that owns TLC, in 2006. A note on the St. Hubert's website said, Petfinder was “born” in NJ and St. Hubert’s was one of the very …

Event benefitting animal shelters in Madison and E. Hanover kicked off June drives underway to help pets
Dogs and their humans headed to the Parsippany Sheraton Hotel May 31 for the first Animal Well Fair. The event, co-sponsored by the hotel and the Parsippany Area Chamber of Commerce, served three purposes: to showcase pet-focused businesses, bring attention to the need for good homes for dogs and cats and to raise funds for the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter in East Hanover and Madison's St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center. Patrick Athy, who heads the human resources department at the Sheraton and brought his own pup to the event, said the Well Fair was all about giving back to the community and showing love for animals. "We're a pet-friendly hotel," he said, pointing out dog-walking paths around the Sheraton. "Animal shelters do an important…

St. Hubert's has your lovable cat or dog.
If you're looking to give an adorable pet friend a home this weekend, look no further. Each week we'll highlight some of the many available pooches and kitties currently in foster homes through St. Hubert's Animal Shelter in Madison. If you would like to adopt, call St. Hubert's at (973) 377-2295. Peanut: This adult male Jack Russell Terrier came to St. Hubert's from West Virginia. He will require a lot of exercise, as he is a very active pup. We think he will do fine in a family with children, another dog or a cat. Proper exercise and an appropriate diet should help slim down his round profile. He's not the type of dog that should be left home alone for long periods of time. If you're visiting, bring the whole family so everyone can say …

Wednesday, May 11, 2011
Dozens of dogs are available for adoption after being moved from shelters following the tornadoes that devastated Southeastern states in April. Forty-nine dogs from storm-wracked areas of Georgia were transported by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and arrived at St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center in Madison on May 9. The dogs had been up for adoption prior to the storms that struck April 25-28. St. Hubert's said that shelters in Georgia's Catoosa County needed that space to hold the large number of animals displaced by the disaster and to allow more time to reunite owners with their pets. Madison also received dogs from shelters in Jasper and Beaufort Counties in South Carolina which had been assisting the…

Shelter animals need loving homes.
I'm Smudge and am a very pretty black and white tuxedo cat. I look like I'm dressed to go out on the town! Sadly, I was found wandering as a stray. I am about 4 years old. It's obvious that I somehow got away from my owners because I'll come to you easily if you speak gently to me. I enjoy people and being where the action is. Wanna play? For more information on adopting Smudge or another lovable cat or dog, 973-377-2295 or visit St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center 12 - 4 p.m., seven days a week at 575 Woodland Ave., Madison.
