Do you want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the Silver Spring community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

Across Maryland, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many are located near you. In the search for an adorable new fur child, consider checking out a local facility like Lovepaws, where Dawn 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 appropriate homes.

If you 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 dog person, you might like Zeus, a Shepherd 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.
