Bernardsville-Bedminster Pets Who Need A Home: Oreo, Daddy & More

12 min read

Do you want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new fur child is at Punta Santiago Dogs Inc, where Nikki the dog 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.

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. If you’re a cat person, meet Oreo, 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.
