Conditions for adoption: If
you're considering adopting from the Humane Society of Bergen County,
come on in during any of our office hours (seven days a week) to meet
and get to know our potential pets. An application can be filled out at
You must be twenty-one years of age or older to adopt any animal.
We also require:
--proof of ownership of your home, or a lease or note from your landlord specifically stating that you are allowed to have pets. This is strictly enforced, as we must ensure our pets are leaving us for forever homes only. Owner or lease holder must be present at the time of adoption.
--a cash-only adoption donation to be paid in full before the animal goes home. Pre-adoption deposits (also cash only) can be discussed with a Human Society representative in person.
--the purchase of a bag of food that your cat or dog has been eating under our care, as sudden changes to an animal's diet can cause serious health issues.
--Cats must also be brought home in a
carrier and dogs must have a leash and collar, all of which can be purchased at our store Kindness Korner if you do not already have it available.
