Rumson-Fair Haven Pets Who Need A Home: Snickers, Binky & Pip & More

12 min read

Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many facilities 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 — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new companion is at Rabbit Haven By The Sea, where Binky & Pip the rabbit is waiting patiently, or another local 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. 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.
