Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Lower East Side-Chinatown community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. During the coronavirus pandemic, facilities in and around Lower East Side-Chinatown have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout New York — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider beginning at a local adoption center like Social Tees Animal Rescue Foundation, where Rexton the dog 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.

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 Matilda, a Shih Tzu 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.
