Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Pittsburgh and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across Pennsylvania — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new companion is at Humane Animal Rescue North, where Noir the rabbit 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 in permanent homes.

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. If you’re a dog person, you might like Pigeon, a Pit Bull Terrier 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.
