Potomac Pets Who Need A Home: Jack, Tyson, Garen & More

12 min read

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in the Potomac area are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across Maryland, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new family member is at Capital Animal Rescue And Environmental Foundation, where Garen the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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.

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 Jack, an Australian 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.
