Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Reston community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in the Reston area are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new family member is at The Feline Foundation Of Greater Washington Inc, where Fivel 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Beloved Bella, a Chihuahua 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.
