Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters in and around Brooklyn Heights-DUMBO have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

In the search for an adorable new friend, consider starting at a local adoption center like Louies Legacy Animal Rescue, where Lazaro 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Brennan, a Great Dane 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.
