Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in Morristown and environs 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 of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new companion is at 911 Dog And Cat Rescue, where Marlon the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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 Test Kitty, 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.
