Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to 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. During the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Virginia — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new companion is at Purple Paws 2nd Chance Rescue, where Meko the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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 round up 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 Zena, a Whippet 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.
