Long Branch-Eatontown Pets Who Need A Home

Want to add to your family and do something good for the Long Branch-Eatontown community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in Long Branch-Eatontown 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 are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new companion is at Tails Of Hope, where Chili 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 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.
