About Toms River Animal Facility

About Our Shelter...

To provide temporary shelter to stray, abandoned, rescued, and surrendered animals with the purpose of finding them permanent suitable new homes.
To facilitate the adoption of rescued abandoned, abused, and neglected animals into safe, loving furever homes. Our passion is to provide a safe and healthy transition into their new homes.
To serve our community and adopters by educating and encouraging responsible pet ownership with an emphasis on the need for spaying and neutering.
We fully investigate and eliminate animal cruelty, abuse, and neglect of domestic animals and wildlife within the Township of Toms River in an efficient and timely manner.

For your Information:
The staff consists of six full timers and three part timers at the facility. The staff is responsible for all daily operations including administrative duties, cleaning/feeding all animals, adoptions, domestic animal training and educational programs, and animal control.
Toms River Animal Control can only remove sick or injured wildlife. We do not handle nesting wildlife or nuisance wildlife in or around residential homes. For this service, a licensed wildlife removal service will need to be contacted. You can find this information in your yellow pages under wildlife trappers, pest control or contact the facility at (732) 341-1000 Ext: 7300 for a reference. Please be aware this is a paid service.
We never euthanized animals due to space or time constraints, but we may elect to euthanize in the event of a severe, untreatable/debilitating illness, or extremely dangerous behavioral concerns.

Our Adoption Process...

The non refundable adoption fee for dogs is $100 dollars and cats are $60 dollars cash or check. The approval process usually takes 24-48 hours for approval by our Division Manager. In order to be considered you must provide valid photo ID with current address, for renters a lease stating pets are permitted, and if vet information is given, an adequate vet check for your current or previous animals. If we feel your application is unfit in any way, we have the right to decline you without further reason. Animals may not be spayed or neutered or up to date on vaccinations. You assume all financial responsibility for the pet once you have signed the adoption contract.
