Welcome to The Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge Adoption Department!!!

We are excited that you are considering adopting a shelter animal. The need for loving, kind, responsible homes for homeless animals is overwhelming, as over 4 million cats and dogs nationwide are euthanized every year. It is important that you find the right kind of pet for your family and your lifestyle. Many animals are in shelters because their owners got them on impulse and didn't research what kind of pet would be best for them. Last year alone, our RBARI adoption counselors helped place over 1,000 animals in new homes. Our Adoption Counselors are there to help you make the best choice possible when selecting a new family member.
