Looking to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During 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.

Across Washington, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — many of whom are located near you. In the search for your new friend, consider starting at a local facility like Collar Of Hope, where Dalton 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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.
