Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Northfield community at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout Minnesota — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new family member is at Last Hope Inc, where Maddis 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.

If you 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. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
