Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Kingstowne-Rose Hill community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in and around Kingstowne-Rose Hill have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Virginia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider checking out a local shelter like Animal Welfare League Of Alexandria, where Grayson 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.

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. 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.
