Do you want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

Across Virginia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new companion is at 4paws Rescue Team, where Odelia & Oprah the cat is waiting patiently, or another local 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Laverne, 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.
