Pet Adoption In The East Hanover-Florham Park Area: New Dogs, Cats Added This Week

Pet News

Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the East Hanover-Florham Park community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in East Hanover-Florham Park and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new friend is at A Second Chance For Ziva Inc, where Hank And Diesel the dog 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you're a cat person, meet Mia, 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.
