Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Roswell community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new friend is at Barkville Dog Rescue, where Rosalie the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 JellyBean, a Chihuahua 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.
