Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the West Deptford community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in and around West Deptford have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new friend is at Dont Bully Us Rescue, where Sherry the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 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 Stuart, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or 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.
