Lost and

Found Pets

of North Jersey

Reducing the Number of Found Pets Entering the Shelter System

Found pets take away space that surrendered and abandoned pets could use. Shelters are not always proactive about advertising found pets. With only 7 days in New Jersey to reclaim found pets from shelters, found pets may be euthanized or adopted to other families. Plus, shelters and kennels can be stressful environments for many pets.

NJ STRAYS works to keep lost and missing pets from ending up in shelters, dead or claimed by strangers. We:

 

  • Operate a lost pet hotline and awareness network across Hudson, Bergen, Passaic, Essex, Union, Morris, Warren and Sussex Counties in North Jersey

  • Organize and operate low-cost and free microchip clinics for pet owners

  • Advise pet owners on what to do when they lose a pet; and advise the community on what to do when a missing pet is found

  • Perform missing pet recovery (trapping)
