Manhattan Pets Who Need A Home: Bleu, Pluto, Cash & More

12 min read

Want to add to your family and do something good for the Manhattan community at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

In the search for a new fur child, consider checking out a local adoption center like Paws Up 4 Rescue, where Dolly the dog 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 in appropriate homes.

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 Bleu, a Shepherd 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.
