Do you want to add a new member 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! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in Florida — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for a new fur child, consider beginning at a local facility like Suncoast Animal League, where Leo 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.

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 dog person, meet Papa Bear, a Corgi mix up for adoption. 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.
