Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Basking Ridge community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across New Jersey — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new fur child is at Somerset Regional Animal Shelter, where Spicy 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 permanent 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 Johnny, 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.
