Want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the 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 in New York — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new friend is at Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, where Babka the cat is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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.

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. If you’re a cat person, meet Garbanzo & Split Pea, 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.
