Animal Control


(609) 877-3000

The Willingboro Township Animal Control, through shared services agreements, serves the residents of Beverly, Delanco, Maple Shade, Mount Laurel, and Willingboro.  

Our Animal Control Officers are tasked with recovering lost domesticated animals/pets, and removing stray domesticated animals and placing them in the Burlington County Animal Shelter for adoption.

Our Animal Control Officers will have limited interaction with the removal or recovery of wild animals.  These incidents are handled on a case by case basis, at the discretion of the Animal Control Officer, based on his/her training and experience as well as the governing state statues and local policies and procedures.
