Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the McLean community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! During the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in and around McLean have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout Virginia — and many are located near you. In the search for your new companion, consider starting at a local animal shelter like Lost Dog And Cat Rescue Foundation, where Princess 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.

If you 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 Buttons, a Catahoula Leopard Dog 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.
