Want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the Great Neck community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout New York — many of whom are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new companion is at Long Island Rabbit Rescue Group, where Alice the rabbit 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.

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 Buddy, 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.
