Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new companion is at Little Black Dog Rescue, where Flint the dog 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 in permanent homes.

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. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
