Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in and around Kansas City have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new friend is at Missouri Pit Bull Rescue, where Doreen 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 in permanent homes.

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 Cheeks, a Pit Bull Terrier 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.
