Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many are located near you. In the search for an adorable new friend, consider looking around at a local animal 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 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. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
