BASS is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization in operation since 1996. We are a group of volunteers very dedicated to the sheltering and care of homeless animals in our communities operating out of a foster home network.

Update: April 6, 2020

Due to the Corona Virus Pandemic, we will NOT be doing regular adoption events and will not be keeping cats at Petco. We look forward to seeing you as the situation improves.

You will still be able to meet and adopt our animals during this time period as follows:

  • We will be doing CAT adoptions via appointment. If you are looking to adopt a cat or kitten, please email us at
  • We will be doing DOG adoptions at our dog foster home (260 Margaret King Avenue, Ringwood) from 3:00-5:00pm 7 days a week. You can also inquire about the dogs: Ellen – (973) 440-0052, or at


We apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you for wanting to adopt a homeless dog or cat. Our shelter has many healthy, loving animals just waiting to be in a home like yours.

Every time you buy a GREEN JUG of Cat’s Pride cat litter, a pound of litter is donated to animal welfare organizations across America to help more shelter cats find forever homes. Also, as a Cat’s Pride Club member, you can nominate your favorite shelter to receive donated litter right now.
