Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in and around East Nashville are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Tennessee — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new family member is at Nashville Cat Rescue, where Callie the cat 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Apple Cider, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
