Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Gaithersburg community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in and around Gaithersburg have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

In the search for your new friend, consider checking out a local animal shelter like Lovepaws, where Toulouse 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 permanent homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Bagger Vance, 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.
