Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the North Hills community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in the North Hills area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new family member is at Animal Friends, where Button the cat is waiting patiently, or another 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 permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Daisy, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
