Want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in the Manalapan area have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for a new fur child, consider looking around at a local adoption center like Hope For Animals, where Chloe 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 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 Biscuit, a Labradoodle 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.
