Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Dearborn community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. During the coronavirus pandemic, many facilities are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across Michigan, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider starting at a local shelter like Friends For Animals Of Metro Detroit, where Enzo the dog is waiting patiently. 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 permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Kendall, 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.
