Want to add to your family and do something good for the Baltimore community at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in the Baltimore area 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 throughout Maryland — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new companion is at Animal Allies Rescue Foundation Aarf, where Cookie the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
