Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Herndon community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in the Herndon 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 across Virginia — many of whom are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider beginning at a local shelter like Nova Pets Alive, where Mj the dog 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.

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. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
