Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. During the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in Brandon and environs have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Florida, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located near you. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider checking out a local adoption center like Lucky Ones Rescue Inc, where Arlo the dog 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 permanent 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 Cedar Furr, 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.
