Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Woodbridge community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new companion is at Animal Care Centers Of Nyc Staten Island, where Nestor 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.

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 DILLON, a Tabby 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.
