Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across Colorado — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new fur child is at Foothills Animal Shelter, where Milo 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.

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