Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in Bethesda-Chevy Chase and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new companion is at City Dogs Rescue And City Kitties, where Ivan the cat 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.

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 cat person, meet Aspen, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
