Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters in Old Town Alexandria and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Virginia — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new family member is at Lus Labs, where Harry the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Blue and Panda, a Chihuahua up for adoption. Or 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.
