Looking to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Forest Hills community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — many of whom are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new companion is at Advocat Rescue, where Basil the cat is waiting patiently, or another 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Pinkie, 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.
