Do you want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in Mount Vernon and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across New York — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new family member is at Yonkers Animal Shelter, where Hemi the dog is waiting patiently, or another local 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Blaze, a Presa Canario 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.
