Ridgewood-Glen Rock Pets Who Need A Home: Eren And Juvia, Sidney & Brownie, Neema & Naria & More

12 min read

Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in and around Ridgewood-Glen Rock are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in New Jersey — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new companion, consider beginning at a local facility like Bonnies Animal Rescue Kingdom, where Tom the dog 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.

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. 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.
