Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the Manville community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in New Jersey — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new family member is at Capic Cat Adoption And Pet Information Center, where Nina the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Lioness and Rana, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
