Lower East Side-Chinatown Pets Who Need A Home: Wiley, Marky Mark, Scout & More

10 min read

Looking to add to your family and do something good for the Lower East Side-Chinatown community at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in Lower East Side-Chinatown and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new companion is at Waggytail Rescue, where Scout the dog is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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.

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 Wiley, 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.
