Animal shelters and rescues around New Jersey serve as places of hope for animals in need — providing them with support, medical attention, and love. Fosters are always needed to help provide temporary homes for dogs, cats, and other small animals throughout the United States. In recent months, many New Jersey animal shelters have become overcrowded. To ensure every animal has a place to sleep comfortably, fosters are needed at many rescues in our area. We’ve compiled a list of animal shelters and rescues that need the community’s help. Read on for a list of New Jersey animal shelters and rescues that currently need fosters, and how you can help them.
