Adopt A Pet From Teaneck Area Shelters: See The Latest Dogs, Cats

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to…

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

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 a new friend is at Chance At Life Cat Rescue, where Pesto the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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 permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
