Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Jackson Heights-Elmhurst community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout New York — and many are located in your area. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider looking around at a local shelter like Second Chance Rescue, where Noland 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.

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