Want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the Boise community at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities in Boise and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Idaho, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new fur child is at Simply Cats, where Blaze the cat 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 in permanent homes.

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 Murphy, a Fox 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.
