Cranford Pets Who Need A Home: Ace, Cyril Figgus, Woodhouse & More

12 min read

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in Cranford and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located near you. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider looking around at a local animal shelter like S Dot Ar Dot A Inc, where Vito 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 in permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together 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 Ace, a Border Collie 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.
