Do you want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Indiana, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located not too far from you. In the search for your new family pet, consider starting at a local facility like Humane Society Northwest Indiana, where Kayden 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.

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 Dune, a Siamese 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.
