Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the Decatur-Avondale Estates community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. During the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Georgia — and many are located near you. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider checking out a local facility like Oakhurst Guinea Pig Rescue, where Rice the guinea pig 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.

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