Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Livingston community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in and around Livingston have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new companion is at Mt Pleasant Animal Shelter, where Cannoli the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 in permanent homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
