Looking to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in Manchester and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across New Jersey — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider starting at a local facility like Popcorn Park Ahs Forked River, where Pollie 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.

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 dog person, you might like Theodore, a Rottweiler 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.
