The John A. Bukowski Shelter for Animals in Bloomfield will hold a Valentine’s Day-inspired Adoption Event that will include reduced adoption fees of $25 for all animals. The event begins this Saturday, February 4, and will run through Sunday, February 19. There will also be an open house on Saturday, February 11, and Sunday, February 12, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Shelter employees and volunteers socialize the animals in residence and help potential adopters find the perfect companion for their families. In addition, a volunteer dog trainer works closely with the adoption committee to assist with proper placement of the dogs that are available for adoption. Adoptions for both cats and dogs include spay/neuter, vaccinations, and a comprehensive medical evaluation.

Visit the shelter website for pictures and detailed information about the pets currently available for adoption.

Donations of Fancy Feast kitten food (turkey and paté flavors), Fancy Feast cat food (seafood and paté flavors), non-clumping clay cat litter, and 6-inch paper plates are welcome. Donations can be dropped off during the open house or any day during regular visiting hours.

The John A. Bukowski Shelter, located at 61 Bukowski Place, Bloomfield, is open 7 days a week from 1 to 4 p.m. Managed by the Township of Bloomfield, the shelter’s animal control serves the towns of Bloomfield, Glen Ridge, and Caldwell.
