Hours of Operation: Monday - Sunday 1pm- 4pm

Animal Control Officers will respond to any stray dog call/complaint during normal working hours between 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. After normal working hours, Animal Control Officers will respond to any stray dog call/complaint including and especially if that dog is posing a threat to human health or appears to be visibly ill/injured.
It is our policy not to respond to "routine" stray dog calls/complaints after dusk. "Routine" calls/complaints are dogs that are not posing a threat to human health or dogs that are not visibly ill/injured. The only exception to this is if the dog has been confined by a resident. We do not under any circumstance advise that a resident attempt to contain or capture a stray animal of any type.
Please contact us during working hours at (973) 748-0194 or the Police Department after hours at (973) 680-4141
A large selection of adoptable cats and dogs are available for immediate adoption to residents of any community. To surrender animals, you must be a resident of Bloomfield or one of our contracted communities.
