Looking to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for your new family pet, consider beginning at a local adoption center like No Paw Left Behind Animal Rescue, where Khloe 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 in appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Salem, 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.
