Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout Michigan — and many of them are located near you. In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider checking out a local adoption center like Animal House Of South East Michigan Inc, where Oliver 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.

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. 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.
