Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Lakewood-JBLM community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across Washington, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new friend is at Lucky Paws Rescue, where Baxter the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

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 dog person, you might like Ponderosa “Rosie”, a Labrador Retriever up for adoption. Or 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.
