The City of Trenton’s Department of Health continues to render COVID vaccinations and testing to Homebound residents and Churches. Today we were able to vaccinate congregants at Friendship Baptist Church with their COVID vaccine boosters after their morning service.

If a Homebound or church request is needed, please reach out to my assistant, Amirah Thomas at 609-989-3332 so we can schedule these requests accordingly.

Also due to the uptick in positive COVID cases, residents must wear their mask in public places and indoor settings. If you are in need of masks, my Department can also provide masks to residents and churches.

Stay safe! Stay healthy!

Like Hunter, it took us almost 2 years to find Banjo the perfect home. He had many meets, a few fosters and a few returns to the shelter. For some people, he was "too much", but to us he was always amazing just as he was. We knew that, like all our pups, there was a home out there for him; a home that would fit his needs. And he found it. His dad tells us that Banjo is super smart and while he still forgets how big he is, he is all love. He even adores his feline brothers and is seen here going to the vet with them. These happily-ever-afters make our work, and all the trauma that comes with it, so very worth it. Please keep sharing our pups and our kitties. There is a home out there for all of them. And you may just be the one to help us find it.
