The holiday season is all about spending time with family, friends, and of course our favorite furry friends. This special time of the year can also be challenging for our four-legged friends still looking for their forever homes. It's especially trying for older pets that have been waiting a long time for that special person or family to take them home.

Take a look at some truly deserving South Jersey pets who need a place to call home this holiday season.
