Want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the Manhattan community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

In the search for your new family pet, consider starting at a local adoption center like All Herding Breed Dog Rescue, where Kodiak 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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 Rupert, a Boxer 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.
