Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new family member is at All 4 The Dogs Rescue, where Sophia the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Candyman, a Persian mix up for adoption. If dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
