Animal Welfare Services
St. Hubert’s caring and professional staff attends to the daily needs of approximately 5,000 companion animals and wildlife annually, providing a number of species-specific services. Our shelters are designed and maintained to ensure both the physical and mental comfort and health of every animal housed and meet or exceed all local and state operational requirements. Farm animals, exotics and wildlife which come into our care are transferred to the custody of those equipped and licensed to provide the proper care for them.
Pet Adoption Program
Every pet deserves a real home—a safe and loving environment with human companionship. Placing homeless animals in permanent homes is the heart of our work at St. Hubert’s and our shelters always have a wonderful selection of dogs, cats and small furry pets awaiting adoption. We have an open, friendly adoption process and our counselors are happy to work with adopters to assist them in selecting the pet that will best suit their lifestyles and preferences. All pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped prior to adoption. St. Hubert’s adoption centers are open every day of the year with the exception of Thanksgiving and Christmas day.
Animal Rescue & Control
Being there for those in need is an important service provided by St. Hubert’s to benefit both the animal and human members of the community. Our state-certified animal control officers are on call 24 hours a day 365 days of the year to respond to animal emergencies within the municipalities who contract for those services. Reuniting lost and found pets with their families is a rewarding facet of our services to the community. Important information and helpful advice on what to do when an animal family member is missing or when a wandering pet has been found is available on our Pet Help Line page. When seeking municipal animal control and rescue services the local police can supply information on the agency contact for an individual community. Additional information on animal control and rescue, including a listing of animal control agency contact for every New Jersey municipality, is available by clicking the tab below.
Living in Harmony with Local Wildlife
Indigenous wildlife species vary according to region. All deserve our respect and protection so that they can live as intended in nature. The encroachment of civilization into the habitats of wildlife brings us to closer proximity and increases the importance of an awareness of our responsibility to humanely prevent, minimize and/or resolve conflict.
