Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Forest Hills community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Forest Hills are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new fur child is at Second Chance Rescue, where Butterfly 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Moonie and Tippy, a Calico 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.
