Looking to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in and around Columbia are still working to fulfill adoptions.

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 within driving distance. In the search for your new family pet, consider starting at a local adoption center like Small Miracles Cat And Dog Rescue, where Yolanda 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 put together 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 Ari, an Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler 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.
