Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Parsippany community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across New Jersey — and many are located in your area. In the search for a new friend, consider starting at a local adoption center like Montville Animal Shelter, where Mango 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Frankie XP, an American Shorthair 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.
