Want to add to your family and give back to the East Atlanta community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

In the search for your new family pet, consider looking around at a local facility like Oakhurst Guinea Pig Rescue, where Brownie the guinea pig 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.

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 Tibbey, an American Shorthair mix up for adoption. 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.
