Want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, facilities in the Roanoke area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

In the search for a new companion, consider beginning at a local facility like Angels Of Assisi, where Bobbie 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.

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 dog person, meet Karen, a Yellow Labrador Retriever 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.
