Looking to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in College Park and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Maryland, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new companion is at Partnership For Animal Welfare Paw, where Rio the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 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 Bianca, 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.
