Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in Wayne and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located within driving distance. In the search for a new friend, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Fowa, where Jordan 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.

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 cat person, meet Serafina, a Domestic Long Hair mix up for adoption. 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.
