The Bloomfield Animal Shelter NJ

The Bloomfield Animal Shelter/John A Bukowski Shelter for Animals is a no-kill animal shelter managed by the Township of Bloomfield. The shelter has many types of dogs and cats available for adoption. Whether our animals come to us as surrenders or as strays, 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.

Happy News!! Our Mama Cat gave birth last week to 4 healthy kittens!! She is very thankful for the recent donations of kitten supplies that are helping her and her babies stay strong & healthy! Staff is so proud of this good mama!

Please note- the kittens are NOT available for adoption & we will not accept adoption applications for them at this time

Times are very tough out there and we are thankful to those that are able to donate. We are expecting to have a busy kitten season and appreciate ANY donation to help us prepare. If you are able and interested in donating essential supplies like Kitten Wet & Dry Food, Kitten Litter, and KMR Powder Milk, please stay safe and order from our Amazon Wishlist! Thanks!

Best Friends Animal Society

Best Friends Animal Society is on the ground in New York City, helping to save the lives of homeless pets and supporting other organizations in their efforts to make New York no-kill permanently. Every day, about 2,000 dogs and cats are killed in shelters across the country – but with Best Friends Animal Society leading the way, and your support, we can help our nation’s shelters and Save Them All. The Best Friends Lifesaving Center in New York City serves as both a space for local pets to find homes, and an outlet for the national no-kill message, helping to spread the word about Best Friends’ efforts to lead the country to no-kill by 2025.

Located in the SoHo neighborhood, the center showcases adoptable animals from local shelters and rescue organizations, as well as the New York City open-admission shelter. Dogs and cats are housed in a playful, gallery-style setting designed to encourage interaction and help convey the challenges facing our country’s homeless pet population. The space also features interactive displays and maps to inspire and engage people from all around the country to work for no-kill in their own communities, and to help Save Them All.

Animal Lifeline of Iowa

Animal Lifeline of Iowa (ALI) is Central Iowa’s only special needs, no-kill animal shelter, celebrating nearly 35 years of serving the Des Moines area and all of Iowa. We rescue cats and dogs that are injured, handicapped, have a serious medical condition, abused, pregnant and nursing moms, or orphans that require bottle feeding. We rehabilitate the animals, who run a higher risk of euthanasia in a traditional shelter setting, and then adopt them into loving forever homes. Animals are not euthanized because they have been at the shelter for a certain length of time.

Cat Stories – Help Us Get Adopted



Chance was found in a snowbank with 2 broken legs (most likely from being hit by a car). A good samaritan took him to the vet & pins were put in both rear legs. The pins started to push out & the person did not have more funds to take me back to the vet. The pins have been removed & he had surgery on a luxating patella.



Please note: DJ is not available for adoption at this time
DJ came from a shelter in il. They called us when they realized he was having issues standing/walking. Dj will receive extensive x-rays on feb 21 to attempt to see what is going on.
We have been told he is afraid cats, likes dogs, but has never been with children.



Indy was originally adopted in 2019, but returned when it was determined the home wasn’t a good fit for her. She is very shy & takes time to warm up. SHE May do best in a home as the only pet.



Leo came to animal lifeline from another rescue, it was believed that he could have
cerebella hypoplasia but we have seen no signs of this. He enjoys other cats & play time!

Lucy came to ali as a pregnant mom in 2016. She was a great mom to her 3 kittens & all 3 found homes. Four years later and lucy is still trying to find a home of her own. Lucy loves to chatter at the birds out the window. She loves to play with the ends of the mop when we are cleaning the hallways. She is a great roommate to all her cat companions and will nap with them and clean them. She has her favorite people that she loves to get pet by.


GREY DSH – BORN 08/2018

Please note: stella is leukemia positive & must be the only cat in the home. She does not care for k9 friends.

TABBY – BORN 8/2015

Thelma originally came to ali when her prior owner was evicted & left her behind. Thelma was adopted but sadly returned when they could no longer care for her.

Thelma is a typical cat – wanting attention & love on her terms, but is very friendly! She is not a fan of the vet so needs a little tlc when getting a check-up.
