Volunteers spent Thursday searching for missing pets from the Avalon at Edgewater fire and hoping all got out alive.
But as night fell, that prospect appeared unlikely. More
Our mission at Bergen County Humane Enforcement is to "Protect and Rescue" as many of the lost, stray and unwanted domestic animals as possible. With the professional use of humane traps and well planned trapping techniques, we are also able to capture and relocate various wildlife to safer locations. We also seek medical assistance and rehabilitation for any animals that are injured.
In addition to rescuing, protecting and relocating animals, we work very closely with many rescue groups and shelters to help find domestic animals their new fur-ever homes. Our aim is to keep animals off the streets and in a loving and caring environment. We also provide pet owners with advice and solutions to their animal related problems.
We provide Animal Control services for the Eastern Bergen County area and utilize our very own NO-KILL shelter, the first in Eastern Bergen County!
Learn all about T-N-R and how you can help save many homeless cats.
T-N-R is the best way to stabilize feral cat colonies in an area. It provides control over the amount of cat and their ability to reproduce. When a cat has gone through the T-N-R process, the veterinarian will clip the tip of the ear to mark that this cat has been trapped and treated accordingly.
Many local Veterinarians and Animal Clinics participate in the T-N-R program. They offer reasonable/affordable pricing and require an appointment for each cat. Local animal control officers and rescue groups can assist you with providing helpful tips and/or the materials necessary for safely trapping feral cats.
Find participating clinics at SPAYNJ.ORG.
We are cooperatively working with several cat rescue groups in our community, targeting specific areas for T-N-R. Please fill out the form below to report a possible feral cat colony in your area. Someone from our organization will be contacting you to schedule a T-N-R setup date for your area.

Using properly planned trapping techniques and humane traps, we capture nuisance wildlife on private property and relocate them to a more conducive environment within town borders. We provide this service for a nominal fee to private residents and businesses where an animal or human might be in danger. Any injured wildlife will be transported to the proper authorities for treatment.
We shelter lost pets until reunited with rightful owner. The states requires a holding period of a minimum of 7 days and proof of ownership is necessary for reclaiming lost pets. Animals that remain at the shelter after 7 days will be available for adoption.
BCHE works closely with various rescue groups, shelters and veterinarians to help find unwanted/unclaimed animals new loving homes. We follow a adoption guideline to ensure that each animal is placed in a safe environment. Check out Eastern Bergen County's very own NO-KILL shelter at www.BCrescues.org!
We quarantine dangerous animals for the state required time frame then release according to state guidelines. We also quarantine animals for court-related issues.
BCHE takes all animal abuse and neglect complaints seriously and will investigate every case to its fullest to ensure that an animal is being properly cared for.
Animal neglect and abuse can be reported to the BCHE for investigation. Please go to our contact page for further information.
Our aim is to help pet owners maintain a comfortable living environment for everyone including their pets. We enforce maintaining a decent noise ordinance, pet boarding and health of any pets living in a residential area or business.
BCHE will provide emergency care and boarding for any animal involved in an emergency situation such as a fire, flood or natural disaster.
We will remove any dead animal in a public area.
