Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new fur child is at All About Rabbits Rescue Inc, where Maisey the guinea pig is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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.

If you 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 Ritter the Pirate Kitty, a Domestic Short Hair 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.
