Looking to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new friend is at Somerset Regional Animal Shelter, where Zuko the dog is waiting patiently, or another local 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Greg, a Cattle Dog up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
