Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Atlanta community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new fur child is at Atlanta Humane Society, where Dakota 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 in permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
