Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in Menomonee Falls and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout Wisconsin — many of whom are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new friend, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Elmbrook Humane Society, where Jules 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 permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up 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 Ryder, a Border Collie 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.
