Want to add to your family and give back to the Del Ray community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Virginia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider checking out a local facility like Dog World Rescue Inc, where Echo 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. 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.
