Want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

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 start your search for your new fur child is at Montclair Township Animal Shelter, where Ally the dog 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.

If you 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 cat person, meet Barry White, 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.
