Jefferson Pets Who Need A Home: Prancer, Lulu, Ellie & More

Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in Jefferson and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across New Jersey — and many of them are located near you. In the search for an adorable new fur child, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like S Dot Os Pets Inc, where Cal And Boots 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 dog person, you might like Prancer, a Chihuahua 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.
