Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Pittsburgh community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many facilities in and around Pittsburgh are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Pennsylvania — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new friend is at Humane Animal Rescue North, where Shnooks the cat 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.

If you 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 cat person, meet Storm, a Siamese mix up for adoption. 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.
