Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in and around Ocean City have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout New Jersey — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new friend is at Cape Atlantic C Dot At Dot S, where Huckleberry 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 permanent 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 Nova, a Mixed Breed 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.
