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! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in and around Islip have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new fur child is at Tender Loving Cats Inc, where River the cat is waiting patiently, or another local 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 in permanent homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together 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 Vinny, a Pit Bull Terrier 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.
