Looking to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the Brooklyn Heights-DUMBO community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new fur child is at Beastly Rescue Inc, where Sabine 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 appropriate homes.

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