Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across New York — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new fur child is at The North Fork Country Kids, where Sami the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
