Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the Cincinnati community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Cincinnati are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

In the search for a new companion, consider looking around at a local animal shelter like Purrfect Friends, where Gizmo the cat 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 appropriate homes.

If you 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 Buddy, a Jack Russell Terrier 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.
