Want 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! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in and around Merrillville have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Indiana, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for your new fur child, consider beginning at a local adoption center like Polo K 9, where Melissa 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 permanent homes.

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 Lilith, a Pit Bull Terrier 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.
