Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the East Cobb community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in and around East Cobb are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Georgia — many of whom are located in your area. In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider checking out a local shelter like Mutt Maddness, where Blot 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 put together 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 Stacy, a Chocolate Labrador Retriever 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.
