Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

In the search for an adorable new friend, consider beginning at a 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Prettiest Little Bitsy, 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.
