Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Georgia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for your new companion, consider checking out a local adoption center like Atlanta Humane Society, where Yumi 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 permanent homes.

If you 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. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
