Southern Ocean County Animal Facility

The Ocean County Health Department operates two animal facilities. The Ocean County Animal Facilities provide temporary housing for dogs and cats and maintain a 24-hour receiving service for stray animals that are brought in by Municipal Animal Control Officers. Features of the shelters include indoor/outdoor dog runs, cat rooms, isolation areas and surgical facilities. All of the pets we adopt out are spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on all age appropriate vaccinations, and receive a general health exam from our veterinarian.

Meet Bruno

Bruno, Pit Bull, Black and White, Male neutered, 10 months old Bruno is a friendly, social, and young boy!  He is a very active boy, and needs a family that can give him plenty of exercise and play time!  Bruno is still young, and would benefit from some more work with his basic training, but he is eager to learn and listens well for treats.  Bruno would do best in a home with children over the age of 12 years old, as he may be too much for younger children.    Adoption hours 1-4 p.m. 7 days a week.. Contact the facility at (609) 978-0127. All dogs are spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, and have age appropriate shots.** To adopt our dogs you must come to the facility with your entire family, including dogs, to meet with our staff and the dog you are interested in. You must also provide us with proof of home-ownership or a renter's policy that states you are allowed to have a dog.
