Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in Edison-Metuchen and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Sammys Hope, where Stella the dog is waiting patiently. 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
