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

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in Virginia — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new friend is at Pra Pet Rescue Alliance, where Pedro 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.

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, you might like Winter, a Husky 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.
