Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Gulfport community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Florida — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new companion is at Compassion Kind, where Chase 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 permanent homes.

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 cat person, meet Midnight, a Domestic Medium Hair up for adoption. Or 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.
