Looking to add to your family and give back to the Decatur-Avondale Estates community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in Decatur-Avondale Estates and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout Georgia — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new friend is at Oakhurst Guinea Pig Rescue, where Brownie the guinea pig is waiting patiently, or another 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 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 dog person, meet Penny, an American Bulldog mix up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
