Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters in and around Gary have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Indiana — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new friend, consider beginning at a local adoption center like The Critter Corral Guinea Pig Rescue, where Edison the guinea pig 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.

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 Ramzees, an American Staffordshire Terrier 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.
