Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters in the Kingstowne-Rose Hill area have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in Virginia — and many are located in your area. In the search for your new companion, consider checking out a local facility like Animal Welfare League Of Alexandria, where Baybee the dog 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 permanent homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Katie, a Domestic Long 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.
