Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Mount Vernon are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in New York — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new companion is at Cat Assistance Inc, where Cooper the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together 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 Blossom, 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.
