Director of Health and Community Wellness Dr. Mark Wade announced today that the City of Newark has entered a temporary emergency contract with the Associated Humane Societies beginning on Thursday, May 2, 2019, after the city’s contract with St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center came to an end. The Associated Humane Societies will provide care and sheltering services for animals picked up by city Animal Control officers, and pets that have been given up by their owners.
“The Associated Humane Societies (AHS) has a new board and both a vision and approach to achieving its mission to support the health and welfare of animals at risk,” said Dr. Wade. We are looking forward to a progressive relationship with them as we continue to canvass the city for a facility and location that would be appropriate for animal sheltering and in turn provide us with a long term solution.”
The Associated Humane Societies’ hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday 12pm to 5:30pm and Sundays from 12pm to 5pm. Residents can call AHS directly at (973) 824 - 7080 to arrange for owner surrender of animals, to reclaim lost pets, and for pet adoptions. For animal control services related to pick up of strays, wildlife, and deceased animals, residents can call the City’s 4311 hotline for assistance.
