Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the Long Island community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new companion, consider checking out a local animal shelter like Smithtown Animal Shelter, where Gavin 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 appropriate 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 Persephone, 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.
