Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to place pets with families.

Across Texas, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new companion is at Red Collar Rescue, where Crackers the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Sweetart, a Rat Terrier 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.
