Latest Pets To Go Up For Adoption In The Watchung-Green Brook Area

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Watchung-Green Brook community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Watchung-Green Brook 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 and sizes without a home across New Jersey — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new family member is at Carls Cats Inc, where Nolan the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Lucas, a Domestic Short 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.
