Help a senior cat this week



Stewie (ID#86340), a 12-year-old, female, front-declawed cat, is currently available for adoption at the Bergen County Animal Shelter, 100 Union Lane, Teterboro. This domestic, short-haired, black and white cat has lived with children before but seems to be a little shy around other animals. Stewie does like to be held and pet, and should do OK in a home with another mellow cat.

The Bergen County Animal Shelter is open for adoption every day except Monday, from 1 to 5 p.m., including weekends. The shelter is open on Thursdays from 1 to 7:30 p.m.  For more information, call 201-229-4600.

There are also many other adoptable animals that can be seen at the shelter’s website>. Many local towns have a Patch website where the shelter’s animals are featured.

The shelter also has a page on Facebook. Please visit and “like” the Bergen County Animal Shelter.
