Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the Brooklyn community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many facilities in the Brooklyn area are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new fur child is at Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, where Symphony the cat 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.

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 cat person, meet Rock, 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.
