Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, many facilities in and around Lacey are still working to fulfill adoptions.

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. In the search for an adorable new fur child, consider checking out a local adoption center like Calling All Cats Rescues, where Moe the cat 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.

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. If you’re a dog person, you might like Rosie, a Beagle 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.
