Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new fur child is at a 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.

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, you might like Brownie #16, a Yellow 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.
