Animal Control

The Township utilizes the services of Newark Associated Humane Society for animal control.

Residents are strongly advised to hire a licensed wildlife removal company to trap and remove raccoons, squirrels or other wildlife that may be nesting or causing damage to a home for the following reasons:

  • Without proper training and expertise, traps can catch something unintended like a skunk or opossum.  
  • Inappropriate and inhumane handling of trapped animals will lead to criminal charges being filed under the animal cruelty statutes.
  • Inexperience with trapping can lead to scratches, bites, back injuries, etc.
  • Trapping of wildlife inside of a residence must be coordinated with necessary repairs to points of entry.

When to Call

  • Deceased animal
  • Animal attack
  • Feral Cats
  • Rabid animal
  • Inhumane conditions
