Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many facilities in and around Raleigh are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout North Carolina — and many are located near you. In the search for your new family pet, consider looking around at a local adoption center like 2 Paws Up, where Tucker 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Midnight, 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.
