The Borough of Madison provides animal control services by highly trained professionals through a contract with St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center of Madison.

Services for domestic animals such as dogs & cats include collection and sheltering, quarantine for rabies control, and assistance with trap, neuter and release (TNR) programs for feral cat populations.

Services for non-domesticated, small wild animals include, guidance for control of wild animals nesting on an owner’s property, and removal or removal assistance of wild animals that enter a home.

Wild animals such as foxes, turkeys, bears and coyotes can be sighted in our community. If they are not creating a nuisance and are transient, they are considered natural to our area. If they cause damage, appear sickly or are aggressive, please review the NJDEP Division of Fish & Wildlife Website, NJDEP Division of Fish & Wildlife or call the Police Dept.
