Do you want to add to your family and give back to the Denver community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new friend is at Maxfund No Kill Animal Shelter, where Winnie the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Joey, a Shetland Sheepdog / Sheltie mix up for adoption. 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.
