Adopt A Pet From Teaneck Area Shelters: New Dogs, Cats Added This Week

Pet News

Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the Teaneck community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for an adorable new companion is at Animal Life Savers Inc, where Fawn 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 in appropriate homes.

If you 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 Tigs, a Tabby up for adoption. Or 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.
