Are you looking for your next furry friend? With a number of great shelters in the area, there’s sure to be a cat or dog that you want to bring home—so adopt, don’t shop.

Here’s a list of the great places that have pets up for adoption near Bloomfield, NJ.

Bloomfield Animal Shelter

The Bloomfield Animal Shelter is managed by the Township of Bloomfield. It is a no-kill animal shelter. They accept both strays and surrenders from Bloomfield and the surrounding communities. They also perform ACO services for animals in these areas.

Each day, the staff and volunteers of the Bloomfield Animal Shelter work with the rescue animals. Through social interactions and ongoing training, they get to know each animals’ individual personality. This ensures that they will match the right pet to the right adoptive family. When you arrive, they will consider things such as your lifestyle, living conditions, and your family situation. Then, they’ll decide which dog or cat is best for you.

They hold regular bake sales, along with the annual Beefsteak Tricky Tray. This event is a night full of food, fun, and great prizes. Best of all, the donations go right back to the shelter so that the animals get the care that they deserve.

Friends of the Shelter also has great resources available on their website. They have a variety of wildlife fact sheets, which help members of the community better understand the animals that call this area home. They also have a guide to stray cats vs. feral cats. This helps people see the signs and know the difference, both for their own safety and the cats’.
