Want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Colorado, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — many of whom are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new friend, consider looking around at a local shelter like We Matter 2 Pet Rescue, where Lady the dog is waiting patiently. 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 Chauncey, a Dachshund 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.
