Want to add 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! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many facilities in Greater Alexandria and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Virginia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for your new family pet, consider looking around at a local shelter like Operation Paws For Homes, where Logray 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Ballea Castle, a Labrador Retriever up for adoption. Or 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.
