Want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

In the search for a new friend, consider starting at a local animal shelter like Treasured Animal Rescue Inc, where Noble 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 appropriate homes.

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. 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.
