Pet Adoption In The Princeton Area: New Pets Added This Week

Pet News

Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the Princeton community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in New Jersey — and many are located not too far from you. In the search for an adorable new fur child, consider looking around at a local adoption center like Save A Friend To Homeless Animals, where Michael the cat 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.

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. Whether you're a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
