  • The Old Bridge Township Animal Shelter is a state-of-the art shelter staffed by one animal control officer, under the supervision of Captain Colleen McNamara of the Old Bridge Police Department. Volunteers provide the assistance needed for the care and placement of the animals. The shelter operates as a non-kill shelter since no adoptable animal is ever euthanized.
