Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in Central Park and environs have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

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 near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new fur child is at a 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.

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. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
