See The Latest Adoptable Pets At Omaha Area Shelters

12 min read

Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in and around Omaha have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new friend is at Taysia Blue Siberian Husky Rescue, where Velino 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.

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 Harris, 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.
