Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Whitefish Bay are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Wisconsin — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for a new fur child, consider beginning at a local shelter like Rescue Gang, where Bruiser $400 the dog 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 in appropriate homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together 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 Henry, a Hound 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.
