Dear Woodbridge Township,
This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. I am not required to fill out an official form. Please acknowledge receipt of this message
showing the following information for the current year thus far AND the last calendar year:
a) number of cats impounded
b) number of cats euthanized
c) number of cats adopted
d) number of cats reclaimed
e) cost to town of holding each cat for 7 days
f) cost per cat for euthanasia and body disposal
g) logs or other records showing locations where impounded cats were picked up by animal control h) logs or other records showing number, type, and place of origin for complaint calls regarding cats
As per your request, attached to this email is the OPRA Request.
I understand that part of the OPRA Request was the cost to the township
for holding each cat for seven days. Unfortunately, that number cannot be
provided. Some may require immediate medical treatment, which will cost
more. To be able to have an exact number would be inaccurate as every cat
that enters the shelter may require a different level of care depending on
Should you have any other questions, please let me know.
