12 min read

Do you want to add to your family and give back to the New City community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across New York — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for your new family pet, consider starting at a local shelter like A Good Dog Rescue, where Jackson 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Frodo, a Labrador Retriever 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.
