Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in Madison and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

In the search for your new companion, consider checking out a local adoption center. 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.
