Looking to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Falls Church and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Lost Dog And Cat Rescue Foundation, where Gremlin 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 appropriate homes.

If you 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 dog person, you might like Gia, a Catahoula Leopard Dog 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.
