Looking to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in Knoxville and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Tennessee — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for an adorable new friend, consider checking out a local animal shelter like Feral Feline Friends, where Twoby 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 Mr. Meow, a Tabby 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.
