We’re Open!

...but you need an APPOINTMENT for some services.

YES! We're still handling adoptions at our shelter by appointment only for approved applications. Before you can adopt, you need to choose one or more animals you're interested in and then fill out an application on our website by clicking the pink ADOPT ME button. Once your application is approved, we will contact you to make an appointment to meet the available animal(s) you are interested in.

YES! We are accepting donations to help the animals at our shelter. Donations can be dropped off daily, without appointment and can be left in the green labeled bins located directly outside the main shelter door. A list of items we can/cannot accept can be found in the donation drop area. You can also learn more about how to support us by clicking here to visit our wish list.

YES! We are still accepting volunteers for select positions! To read more about our program and needs, please click here to visit our volunteer page.

Visitors must wear a CDC-approved face mask at all times while they are in the shelter.

Fundraise With RBARI

How to Hold a Facebook Fundraiser

With this link, you will easily be able to create a fundraiser for Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge. Click here to get started!

ResQWalk App

ResQwalk is a free mobile app (that you can download by clicking here on your phone!) that lets you raise money and resources for your favorite animal welfare organization, and all you have to do is walk! This is great for our staff, volunteers, and the public to help raise money for RBARI by simply walking while at the shelter, or at home.

All you have to do is download the application, click the magnifying glass in the top right corner and type in Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge to choose it as their rescue to have donations go to. At the beginning of each walk, click start walk and at the bottom, make sure that RBARI is selected as the non-profit of choice, and just start going!

Thank you to our beautiful and dedicated community for creating such unbelievable projects and collecting goods and more for our animals!
