Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in and around Hoboken have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across New Jersey — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider checking out a local shelter like Animal Lighthouse Rescue, where Tadea 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 in permanent homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together 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 Athena, a Labrador Retriever 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.
