Looking to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across Georgia — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new companion is at Atlanta Humane Society, where Slick 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.

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 cat person, meet Twinnie, a Domestic Medium 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.
