Looking to add to your family and make a positive impact on the Point Pleasant community at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across New Jersey — and many are located near you. In the search for your new companion, consider looking around at a local animal shelter like Jersey Shore Animal Center, where Dinah the cat 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Althea, a Tuxedo 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.
