Want to add to your family and do something good for the East Village community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in and around East Village have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located in your area. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider looking around at a local adoption center like Pupstarz Rescue, where Quinn 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 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, you might like STEVEN, a Chihuahua 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.
