Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

In the search for a new family pet, consider checking out a local adoption center like Polo K 9, where Robyn 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.

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. If you’re a dog person, meet Yam, a Chihuahua 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.
