Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Nashville community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Tennessee — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new family member is at Wags And Walks, where Shiraz 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.

If you 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 Walter, an American Staffordshire 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.
