A little history...

On January 16, 2015, the Hunterdon County Division of Health services conducted an annual inspection of the Hunterdon Humane Animal Shelter and found that it was in violation of N.J.A.C 8:23A-1.9(a) and N.J.A.C 8:23-1.11(e).


These violations were ‘Failure to establish and maintain a program of disease control and adequate health care (program) under the supervision and assistance of a doctor of veterinary medicine and Failure to specify which mode of euthanasia the technicians are certified for’.  HHAS hired veterinarians, but had little success in retaining them.   Finally, it was forced to close in June 2016. 

Previous inspections indicate a long time history of issues at the shelter.   Here is one dated Oct. 23, 2013.

"Our grassroots group is united to prevent these conditions from ever happening again in our county's shelter."
