Do you want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in and around Indianapolis have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in Indiana — many of whom are located not too far from you. In the search for a new fur child, consider beginning at a local shelter like Indianapolis Animal Care Services, where Shade the cat 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet LOUIE, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
