Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in and around Chestnut Hill-Mt. Airy have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Pennsylvania, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a new family member is at Philly Bully Team, where Zeppole the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Mr. Moore, 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.
