Looking to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the Houston community at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Houston and environs 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 Texas — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new fur child is at City Of Houston Barc Animal Shelter And Adoptions, where Cinnamon the dog is waiting patiently, or another local 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 put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet PANDA, a Labrador Retriever mix up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
