Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Phoenix community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across Arizona — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider checking out a local facility like Mcacc West Valley Animal Care Center, where Wilson 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 dog person, meet Betsy, a Mixed Breed mix up for adoption. 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.
