Want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across Virginia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider looking around at a 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.

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. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
