Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the Athens community at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Georgia — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider checking out a local adoption center like Athenspets, where Lee 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.

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, meet Raichu, a Labrador Retriever mix up for adoption. 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.
