Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for 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. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters in and around Arvada have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

In the search for a new fur child, consider starting at a local animal shelter like Cat Care Society, where Beatrix 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.

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 Buddy, a Chihuahua 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.
