Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new friend is at German Shepherd Rescue Of The Rockies, where Loki the dog 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.

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 Velma, a Dilute Calico 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.
