Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to place pets with families.

Across Tennessee, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for an adorable new companion is at Metro Animal Care And Control, where Theodore 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 in appropriate homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create 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 Ollie, a Great Pyrenees 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.
