Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in the Arlington area have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new fur child is at Worthy Dog Rescue, where Olive the dog is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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 round up 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 Colette aka Lettie, a Labrador Retriever 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.
