Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in Reno and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider checking out a local adoption center like Spca Of Northern Nevada, where Suzie 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.

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 dog person, meet Miss Piggy, a Pit Bull 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.
