Do you want to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the Great Neck community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in Great Neck and environs have dogs, cats and other 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 New York — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for a new family pet, consider checking out a local facility like Town Of North Hempstead Animal Shelter, where Joey 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
