New animal shelter comes to aid of Newark

November 19, 2018 by  

The City of Newark recently began a new partnership with St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center Madison Campus, which will provide temporary shelter for animals who are taken in the animal control team of the city.

In addition to shelter, St. Hubert’s will also offer medical care for cats, dogs, small animals, and other wildlife injured while the city finalizes long-term plans for sheltering its animals. Residents of Newark will be able to call the same animal control phone number and animal control officers will help with injured or lost animals during the day and evening hours. Rescued animals will be transported to St. Hubert’s.

Heather Cammisa, president and CEO of St. Hubert’s, said that the shelter will not only provide traditional accommodations for the animals of Newark, but also extend its community outreach programs into the city. These will include such areas as various pet care needs, vaccinations, and other resources.

Bill de Blasio, mayor of New York City; Steven Fulop, mayor of Jersey City; and the executives of St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center, were all thanked by Ras Baranka, Mayor of Newark, for their help in supporting the animal control services of the city.

Flyer printing companies can be hired so that the residents of Newark become aware of such changes and the services that will be provided for lost, injured, or stray animals.
