Local Pet Adoption Agencies C.L.A.W.S. (Closter Animal Welfare Society) CLAWS rescues and fosters abandoned or unwanted cats and dogs in the Bergen County, NJ area. With the help of a network of dedicated volunteers, they work to find the best permanent homes for these animals. Bergen County Animal Shelter The Bergen County Animal Shelter is located in Teterboro, NJ. They are open to the public every day from 1 to 5 pm and on Thursdays until 8 pm. The shelther accepts strays from towns that contract with them for animal control and owned animals for a fee from residents of contracting towns in Bergen County. They also accept owned animals for a fee from non-contracting towns if space allows. Bergen County Protect and Rescue Foundation Bergen County Protect and Rescue is a No-Kill Animal Welfare Facility located in Cliffside Park. It was founded in 2012 by Bergen County's very own local Animal Control Agency and concerned citizens. The idea of creating a no-kill facility came to be when animal control officers were forced to take lost and abandoned animals to surrounding veterinarians and animals shelters.
'What do I do if I find an injured or baby wild animal?' Should you find a fawn or other young wild animal, the best thing to do is to leave it alone. Do not consider young wildlife as possible pets. This is illegal and bad for the animal. If you encounter a young wild animal that is obviously injured or orphaned, call a licensed wildlife rehabilitator for advice and help. Wildlife rehabilitators are volunteers licensed by NJDEP & the NYDEC, and are the only people legally allowed to receive and treat distressed wildlife. The goal of the rehabilitator is to release healthy animals back into the wild, where they belong. In Bergen County you can reach animal control for assistance with any questions regarding injured or abandoned wildlife.
