Looking to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in and around Decatur-Avondale Estates have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Georgia, 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 start the search for an adorable new family member is at Paws Atlanta, where Ace the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Rabbit, a German Shepherd Dog up for adoption. Or 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.
