Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Wayne community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in the Wayne area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in New Jersey — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for a new fur child, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Geraldine Foundation For Strays Gfstrays, where Blake the dog 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 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 dog person, you might like Cinnamom, a Dachshund up for adoption. Or 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.
