Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in Pennsylvania — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new fur child is at Humane Animal Rescue North, where Goddi the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

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 Mavis, 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.
