Looking to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in and around Ellicott City have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Maryland, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new companion is at a local shelter. 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. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
