How do I remove feral cats from my property?
In order to remove cats that cannot be handled, it is necessary to confine them in a humane trap. We will loan you a trap and pick up any cats caught between 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. on weekdays.


No trapping is done on holidays or weekends. This service only available to towns that contract with Bergen County Animal Control.

It is your responsibility to watch the trap and notify Animal Control when an animal is in the trap. The trap is to be closed at 4:30 pm unless you are attempting to trap a skunk, raccoon or opossum.

For more information, call Animal Control at 201-229-4616.
