Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Miami community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in Miami and environs have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Florida — many of whom are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new companion is at Saving Paws 4 Love, where Choco the dog 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 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 Amber, a Labrador Retriever 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.
