Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

In the search for an adorable new companion, consider starting at a local adoption center like 911 Dog And Cat Rescue, where Pumba 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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, you might like Lieutenant Dan, a Chihuahua 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.
