Want to add to your family and give back to the Brookline community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, facilities have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new friend is at Ellen M Gifford Sheltering Home, where Margie 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Indy, 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.
