Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Birmingham community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many facilities in the Birmingham area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Alabama — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new family member is at Weimaraner Rescue Of The South, where Folly the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 appropriate homes.

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 cat person, meet BASIL, 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.
