Want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the Secaucus community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across New Jersey — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new companion is at Union City Animal Trust, where Magic 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 appropriate 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 Begonia, 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.
