Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, facilities in the Gary area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Indiana — and many are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a new fur child is at Humane Society Northwest Indiana, where Apollo 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 in permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Kerri, 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.
