Bergen County Animal Shelter & Adoption Center Pet Meet & Greet

Bergen County Animal Shelter & Adoption Center Pet Meet & Greet

Are you looking to adopt a pet? Come to the library for a meet & greet with select cats and dogs from the shelter. If you find a pet you would like to adopt, you will need to complete an application. 

***There will not be any adoptions at the event. You will be able to meet the pets that are brought and complete an application.


Adopters must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be at least 21 years of age
  • Must present photo identification
  • Must show proof of current address
  • Proof of home ownership or for renters, copy of the lease allowing pets
  • The entire family must be present
  • If you already have a dog(s), a meet and greet is required. Dog meet and greets are not done on the same day as the initial meeting with the shelter dog.
  • Current pet owners must provide a veterinary reference.

Adoption fees are based on the age of the pet and include the following (for cats and dogs):

  • Vet exam
  • Spay or Neuter
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Microchip
