  The Ocean County Health Department operates two animal facilities.  The Ocean County Animal Facilities provide temporary housing for dogs and cats, and maintains a 24-hour receiving service for stray animals that are brought in by Municipal Animal Control Officers.  Features of the shelters include indoor/outdoor dog runs, cat rooms, isolation areas, and surgical facilities. 

 



PETS FOR ADOPTION

 

Both facilities offer cats and dogs for adoption. 

 

Dogs & Puppies: $60

Cats & Kittens: $55

  Every pet we adopt out is spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations, and have received a general health exam by our facility veterinarian, all included with your adoption fee.   

Our General Adoption Policy:
 
  1. Everyone in the house-hold (for dog adoptions this includes any dogs that live in the home) need to meet the pet prior to adoption
  2. Proof of Residence:
  3. Homeowner: mortgage statement or tax bill
  4. Rental: lease with pet policy stating any specifications of breeds and number of animals allowed
  5. Driver's License or valid proof of identification
  6. Fill out an Adoption Questionnaire and get it approved by Facility Management
  7. Exact Cash or a check with an address matching that on the Driver's License (Dogs are $60; Cats are $55)
  ALL ADOPTIONS ARE ON A FIRST COME/FIRST SERVE BASIS.  WE CANNOT PLACE ANY HOLDS ON ANY PETS.
