Our Mission

Our affiliate organization, Bergen County Humane Enforcement, handles the animal control duties for numerous towns in northern New Jersey.

Our mission is to rescue and protect as many of the lost, stray and unwanted domestic animals as possible.

With the professional use of humane traps and well-planned trapping techniques, we are also able to capture and relocate various wildlife to safer locations. We also seek medical assistance and rehabilitation for any animals that are injured.

In addition to rescuing, protecting and relocating animals, our organization works very closely with many rescue groups and shelters to help find domestic animals their new fur-ever homes. Our aim is to keep animals off the streets and in a loving and caring environment. We also provide pet owners with advice and solutions to their animal related problems.
