The Bloomfield Animal Shelter/John A Bukowski Shelter for Animals is now being managed by the Township of Bloomfield as a no-kill shelter.
The shelter has many types of dogs and cats available for adoption, including purebred and mixed breeds. Many come to us as surrenders, thus giving us more information on their backgrounds and personalities, whether they get along with dogs, cats or children, and other important information.
Others come to us as strays, but even though we don't have a great deal of insight about their previous lives, through daily social interactions and training, the shelter staff and volunteers get to know each dog and cat's personality, enabling us to make the best possible match for each adopter and animal.
We treat every animal as an individual, regardless of breed or background.
