Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Plum-Oakmont community at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in the Plum-Oakmont area are still working to fulfill adoptions.

In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider checking out a local animal shelter like Paws Across Pittsburgh, where Daniel Tiger the cat 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 Keisha, 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.
