Parsippany Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Feta, Cheddar & More

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Parsippany community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in Parsippany and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout New Jersey — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for an adorable new companion, consider looking around at a local adoption center like Montville Animal Shelter, where Asiago 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together 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.
