Looking to add to your family and give back to the Pelham community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! During the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout New York — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new companion is at Yonkers Animal Shelter, where Blaze the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

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 cat person, meet Coco & Honey, a Domestic Medium 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.
