Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Phoenix community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters in the Phoenix area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Arizona, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located near you. In the search for a new fur child, consider starting at a local shelter like Az Ruff Roads Rescue, where Jewel the dog 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.

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 dog person, meet Esperanza, a Terrier mix up for adoption. 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.
