Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Maryland, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for your new fur child, consider starting at a local facility like The Maryland Spca, where Lou Lou Who the cat 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.

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. If you’re a dog person, meet Diesel, a German Shepherd Dog mix up for adoption. 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.
