Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in and around Prospect Heights-Crown Heights have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout New York — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new friend is at a local 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 put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Flora and Deizy, 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.
