Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Madison community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in Madison and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Wisconsin — many of whom are located near you. In the search for your new companion, consider looking around at a local facility like Underdog Pet Rescue Of Wisconsin Inc, where Miso 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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, you might like Kaya, an Akita 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.
