Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the Gowanus-Red Hook community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout New York — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new fur child is at a 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 in appropriate homes.

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, you might like Mitchell Pritchett, a Beagle 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.
