Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout Virginia — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider beginning at a local adoption center like Loudoun County Animal Shelter, where Goldie 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 permanent homes.

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. If you’re a cat person, meet Bernie, 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.
