Adorable Adoptable Pets Of The Week In The Fair Lawn-Saddle Brook Area

Pet News

Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in Fair Lawn-Saddle Brook and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new family member is at Save The Animals Rescue Team Ii, where Peaches the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you're a cat person, meet Amber, a Domestic Short Hair 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.
