Want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in Del Ray and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Virginia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new fur child is at King Street Cats, where Bissell the cat is waiting patiently, or another local 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.

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 cat person, meet Hoover, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
