Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Toms River community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in the Toms River area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new family member is at Calling All Cats Rescues, where Connie 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.

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. If you’re a dog person, you might like Emma, a Pit Bull 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.
