Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Wyckoff community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in and around Wyckoff are still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located near you. In the search for your new companion, consider looking around at a local shelter like Real Dog Rescue Inc, where Fiona the dog 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Banjo, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
