Want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the Herndon community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

In the search for your new fur child, consider starting at a local shelter like The Cats At Longstreet, where Petunia Beverly the cat 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 appropriate homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Pluto, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
