Howell Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Biggie, Nina, Honey & More

Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Howell community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

In the search for an adorable new companion, consider looking around at a local adoption center like Ahs Tinton Falls, where Lola the dog 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 put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Biggie, an American Bulldog mix up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
