“For most of us, our pets are part of our family, with this trailer and working with the county they will designate whether its a school, building and say, ‘We are going to house peoples pets there,'” said President of New Jersey Federation of Dogs Clubs Jeffery Ball.

The trailer is also equipped with a microchip scanner so workers can identify lost pets.
