Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many facilities in and around Austin are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Texas — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new fur child is at Cocker Spaniel Rescue Of Austin San Antonio, where Buckaroo the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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.

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 Belle, a Jack Russell Terrier 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.
