Do you want to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in the Germantown area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Maryland, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for a new companion, consider beginning at a local facility like Lovepaws, where Diamond 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.

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. If you’re a dog person, you might like Richard, a Labrador Retriever 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.
