Looking to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in and around Dearborn have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Michigan, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new companion is at Friends For Animals Of Metro Detroit, where Valentine 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 in appropriate homes.

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. If you’re a cat person, meet Mr. Stitch, 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.
