Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new fur child is at Somerset Regional Animal Shelter, where Midnight the cat is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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 Nick and Nack, a Domestic Short Hair mix up for adoption. 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.
