Animal Control

Animal Control services are the responsibility of Camden County and their animal control officers, who are trained and available to assist you.  The Humane Society of Camden County houses homeless animals, but does NOT pick up animals.

If you see a stray, it is best not to try to capture the animal yourself. We highly recommend that you contact Animal Control at the numbers listed below.

If you think that an animal is being neglected, call the Animal Control number. Give as much information as possible including your name and number in case there are any questions. The animal control officers will attempt to keep this information confidential. If there is legal action taken, they may need to have you testify. Even if you are not sure if an animal is being neglected, call and leave the information. The animal control officers have been trained to conduct an evaluation and make the determination.

For Emergencies call 911.

If you see a seriously injured animal or an animal being actively abused, call 911
