If your pet is lost or if you observe a stray animal in the community, immediately notify the Police Department at 609-448-1234. Since all ACO calls are routed through the Police, they can help connect you with the animal control officer and may be aware of other callers who have reported sightings of lost pets. Strays which are picked up by the ACO are placed in a shelter for a minimum of 7 days to allow time for the owner to reclaim their pet. The ACO can also provide additional tips and local resources to reunite owners and lost pets.

If your observe a stray animal, please consider your safety before approaching the animal since frightened, sick or injured animals may behave unpredictably.
