Want to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the Garden City community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in Garden City and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new friend is at Barrk Animal Rescue, where Rosie the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 Domino or Dominic, a Border Collie 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.
