Want to add to your family and do something good for the Atlanta community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in and around Atlanta have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

In the search for your new companion, consider looking around at a local shelter like Atlanta Humane Society, where Tinker 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 in permanent homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Zax, a Domestic Short 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.
