Adopt A Pet From Marlboro-Coltsneck Area Shelters: See New Dogs, Cats & More

Pet News

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Marlboro-Coltsneck community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in the Marlboro-Coltsneck area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new companion is at Hope For Animals, where Daisy the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 appropriate homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you're a cat person, meet Dewey, a Domestic Short 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.
