Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Maryland — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new family member is at Knine Rescue Inc, where Vincent the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up 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 Frannie, a Dachshund 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.
