Looking to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in the Hicksville area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across New York — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new fur child is at Town Of Hempstead Animal Shelter, where Igor the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 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 Kobe, 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.
