Honor your pet - either living or a loving memory - by helping us decorate the tree. Download the attached flyer to have a picture or name ornament created of your pet for a donation of $5 or more. We will be accepting donations from October 18 until December 14. You're all invited to join us at the Tree Lighting Ceremony, which will be held on Tuesday, November 18, at 7 p.m. at the Library, 31st Street and Avenue C, Bayonne.
Help Our Bottle Babies
One of our volunteers found these four babies abandoned in a remote area of Bayonne. Approximately 3-4 weeks old, these little darlings need veterinary treatment and lots of love to help them thrive. Can you help? We are looking for volunteers to foster the kittens, which will require bottle feeding for the next several weeks (we'll show you how!). If you're unable to foster, a monetary donation towards their veterinary care will be greatly appreciated! You can send a check to HCAL at P.O. Box 4332, Bayonne, NJ 07002 or make a secure donation thru Pay Pal on our Donate page.

A Meow of Thanks from Clara.....and HCAL!
On behalf of our blind kitty, Clara, HCAL would like to thank everyone who recently donated towards the surgery to remove Clara's diseased eye. Clara underwent her surgery several weeks ago and, except for a minor setback with an abscess, all went well! Our thanks also to Dr. Michael Santiago and the staff at East Orange Animal Hospital for the wonderful care they gave Clara.Saving the best news for last - Clara has found a forever home with Leah, who had been fostering Clara for us! A happy ending for all!
