South Brunswick Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Teddy, Blaze, Ava & More

Want to add to your family and give back to the South Brunswick community at…

Want to add to your family and give back to the South Brunswick community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in and around South Brunswick have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in New Jersey — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new friend is at New Beginnings Animal Rescue, where Ava the cat is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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 Teddy, 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.
