Looking to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the Elkridge community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters in and around Elkridge have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Maryland, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new fur child is at Animal Safe Haven And Adoptions Inc, where Bluff the cat 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 permanent homes.

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 Arthur, a Domestic Short Hair mix up for adoption. 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.
