Looking to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in and around Hobart have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new companion is at Lake County Sheriffs Animal Control And Adoption Center, where Slickback the dog is waiting patiently, or another 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 in appropriate homes.

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 Slator, a Mixed Breed 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.
