The Ocean County Health Department operates two animal facilities. The Ocean County Animal Facilities provide temporary housing for dogs and cats and maintain 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.

Animals are available for adoption at a fee that includes examination by a veterinarian, vaccinations and micro-chipping. Spaying/neutering is also done at no extra charge. Both facilities are open to the public daily (except holidays) from 1- 4 p.m. and Wednesday from 1 – 6:30 p.m.

Free rabies vaccinations are also available to the public for dogs and cats at either facility. For an appointment or more information, please call the Northern Ocean Animal Facility at (732) 657-8086 or the Southern Facility at (609) 978-0127.
