Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Kennesaw and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Georgia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new fur child is at Mostly Mutts, where Elsie the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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 Oscar, 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.
