Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the New Brunswick community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across New Jersey — many of whom are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new fur child is at Save The Animals Today A Nonprofit Corporation, where Gerald the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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 Roland, a Domestic Short Hair 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.
