South Brunswick Pets Who Need A Home: Gerald, Jj, Geena & More

12 min read

Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the South Brunswick community at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in South Brunswick and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across New Jersey — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new companion is at Karma Cat Zen Dog Rescue Society, where Geena the cat 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.

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. If you’re a cat person, meet Gerald, a Domestic Long Hair mix up for adoption. If dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
