About Us

Who we are...
The Hudson County Animal League, incorporated in 1994, is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization and all donations are tax deductible. We are approved by the State of New Jersey Department of Health as an adoption agency. As the League continues to establish its reputation locally, it has gained the recognition of state and national peers in the animal rescue/humane community.

HCAL is working with the City of Bayonne to establish a humane, compassionate animal haven here.

...and some of the things we do!

  • Rescue/foster abandoned animals
  • Promote and subsidize spay/neuter services
  • Adopt animals into permanent loving homes
  • Provide information and referrals on responsible pet care
  • Trap/neuter/release feral cats
  • Assist with veterinary services for the indigent

Our voice mail phone line (201 200-1008) receives calls daily regarding adoption, information on pet care, medical and spay/neuter services, unwanted pets and strays, lost and found animals, and other animal-related concerns. The phone lines are staffed by League members.

The League advocates and promotes the spay/neuter/release method of feral cat management. Interested parties may borrow traps and receive trapping instructions from League volunteers.

HCAL is also a member of the Hudson County Animal Response Team (CART), working with representatives of the Red Cross, the Office of Emergency Management and the Liberty Humane Society of Jersey City on the establishment of a disaster plan for the county?s animals.
