Do you want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

In the search for a new friend, consider starting at a local shelter like Ellen M Gifford Sheltering Home, where Annabell the cat is waiting patiently. 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 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 Sasha, a Labradoodle 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.
