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

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Rhode Island — and many 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 Friends Of Exeter Animals, where Hercules the cat 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.

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 cat person, meet Elsa, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
