Oakland Adoptable Pets Of The Week: Carly, Simba, Gepetto & More

Pet News

Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it's the right time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, facilities in the Oakland area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider checking out a local shelter like All Humane Animal Rescue, where Harper the dog is waiting patiently. 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. If you're a dog person, you might like Carly, a Beagle up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
