Strays or Loose Pets & Adopting a Pet

Stray or Loose Pets:

Bernards Township contracts with a local kennel to provide safe housing of stray dogs and cats. If you have found a loose pet or yours has been lost phone the Bernards Township Animal Control office at 908-204-3066 during business hours and the non-emergency police dispatch at 908-766-1122 after business hours and on weekends.

These pets are housed at:

Starcrest Kennels
19 Fourth Street
Warren, New Jersey 07059

Pet Adoptions:

All of our adoptable pets are also located at Starcrest Kennel in Warren Township. These animals include some stray animals which have been picked up by our Animal Control Officer. They legally must remain for seven days at the kennel. After the seventh day if nobody has called to claim the animal, they are available for the general public to adopt. If you would like to see our available pets in person call the kennel at 908-644-4624 for office hours.
