Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Morris Township-Morris Plains community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in Morris Township-Morris Plains and environs have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new family member is at 911 Dog And Cat Rescue, where Mabel 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 appropriate 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, meet Belka, a Great Pyrenees mix up for adoption. 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.
