Want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in and around Bensalem have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider checking out a local adoption center like Furry Tales International Rescue Team, where Fortuna the dog 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.

If you 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 cat person, meet Theo, a Tabby up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too.
