Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in and around Boise have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout Idaho — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider beginning at a local facility like Simply Cats, where Gandalf 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 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 Roxy, a Miniature Pinscher 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.
