Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Germantown community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

In the search for a new family pet, consider beginning at a local adoption center like Montgomery County Animal Services And Adoption Ctr, where Sage the dog is waiting patiently. 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. If you’re a dog person, meet Remy, a Basset Hound 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.
