Looking to add to your family and do something good for the Ossining-Croton-On-Hudson community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in Ossining-Croton-On-Hudson and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new fur child is at Spca Of Westchester, where Ester the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
