Adopt A Pet From Hopewell-Pennington Area Shelters: See New Local Dogs, Cats & More

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Hopewell-Pennington and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions.

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 within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new friend is at Animal Allies, where Dutchie the cat 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.

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 Ingrid’s Kittens, a Tiger mix up for adoption. 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.
