Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Texas — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for an adorable new fur child, consider starting at a local facility like Save Some Souls, where Strider 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.

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, meet LilliJune, a Pointer mix up for adoption. 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.
