Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

Across Rhode Island, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new family member is at Pride Rock Rescue, where Ru the dog 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 appropriate homes.

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 Moose, 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.
