Want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout New York — many of whom are located in your area. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider starting at a local facility like Town Of Hempstead Animal Shelter, where Girl 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Royal, 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.
