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

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across New York — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new friend is at Town Of North Hempstead Animal Shelter, where Koda the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

If you 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. 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.
