Falls Church Pets Waiting To Be Adopted: Phoebe, Pandora, Millie The Border Collie & More

12 min read

Looking to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Virginia — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new friend is at Lost Dog And Cat Rescue Foundation, where Millie The Border Collie the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 appropriate homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Phoebe, a Mixed Breed up for adoption. Or 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.
