Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

Across North Carolina, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located in your area. In the search for a new fur child, consider starting at a local adoption center like Greater Charlotte Spca, where Folgers the dog 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 permanent homes.

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 Starbucks, a Hound 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.
