Oyster Bay Adoptable Pets: Meet Mocha *Super Urgt* Needs Immed Foster Home, Tank, Diana & More

11 min read

Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in Oyster Bay and environs have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across New York — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new friend is at Town Of Oyster Bay Animal Shelter, where Diana the cat 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 appropriate homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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, meet Mocha *SUPER URGT* NEEDS IMMED FOSTER HOME, an American Staffordshire Terrier mix up for adoption. 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.
