Want to add to your family and give back to the East Austin community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across Texas, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located near you. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider looking around at a local shelter like Austin Siamese Rescue, where Twyla the cat 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 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 Cheesecake, a Cocker Spaniel 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.
