New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher announced Aug. 19 the launching of a new website—www.animalemergency.nj.gov—designed to provide residents with up-to-the minute information they would need to protect their pets and livestock in times of emergency.

The New Jersey Department of Agriculture’s (NJDA) Animal Emergency Response website and its companion mobile and tablet sites offer resources for animal owners to prepare for disasters of all kinds and provides resources on what they can do prior to, during, and after emergencies.

“New Jersey has faced many emergencies, both large and small, in the last several years and we know that people feel very strongly about protecting their animals in those situations,” said Fisher. “Our new website gives folks the resources they need to care for their animals in those trying times and also keep themselves safe in the process.”

The site is interactive and allows people to find the nearest help available, including animal shelters, veterinary hospitals, offices of emergency management, feed stores, county fairgrounds, and Rutgers Cooperative Extension offices
