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! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across New York — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Animalovers, where Midnight the cat 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 put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet MEADOW, a Tabby up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
