Looking to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in the North Potomac-Darnestown area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across Maryland — many of whom are located near you. In the search for a new fur child, consider looking around at a local facility like Montgomery County Spca, where Soos the cat 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 in appropriate homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Hallow, 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.
