Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Montclair community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout New Jersey — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new friend is at Paws Montclair, where Mopsy the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 Gucci, an American Staffordshire Terrier 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.
