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 animal from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in Austin and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Texas, 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. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new family member is at Austin Siamese Rescue, where Purrsilla the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

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 Niki, 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.
