Want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the Baltimore community at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in Baltimore and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Maryland, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new companion, consider beginning at a local adoption center like Animal Allies Rescue Foundation Aarf, where Sussy the cat 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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 China, an American Staffordshire Terrier 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.
