Matawan-Aberdeen Pets Who Need A Home: Loki, Callie, Eliiot & More

13 min read

Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. During the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in Matawan-Aberdeen and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for an adorable new family member is at C Dot Ar Dot E Companion Animal Rescue And Education, where Eliiot the dog 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up 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 Loki, a Siberian Husky 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.
