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.
Records of all dogs microchipped to Poor Paws Rescue surrendered to Woodbridge Animal Shelter
Your OPRA request cannot be fulfilled due to the fact that our software is
not designed to retrieve information by rescue name if said rescue is not
in our system as an approved rescue that The Woodbridge Animal Shelter
does business with. In addition, micrcochip information would only be
accessible by primary contact on the chip, for example- the owner’s
If you are looking for information on a specific animal, you would need to
provide the exact microchip number(s) or a pet owner’s name.
In order to search by rescue in our system, the rescue would have to be on
our drop down list, which “Poor Paws” is not.
I have attached a photo of our rescue drop down list that is in
alphabetical order to provide proof that “Poor Paws” is not a rescue that
The Woodbridge Animal Shelter works with.
