Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across Florida, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new companion is at Pb No Paws Left Behind Rescue, where Blaze 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 Peppy !!!, a Coonhound 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.
