Do you want to add to your family and give back to the Bloomfield community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a new companion is at Bloomfield Animal Shelter John A Bukowski Shelter For Animals, where Checkers the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Izzy, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
