Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for an adorable new fur child is at Our Best Friends Rescue, where Mystic the dog is waiting patiently, or another 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.

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 dog person, meet Evie, a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen mix up for adoption. 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.
