Looking to add to your family and give back to the Rochester-Rochester Hills community at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many facilities are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Michigan — and many are located not too far from you. In the search for an adorable new fur child, consider looking around at a local shelter like Heavenly Paws Of Michigan, where Ray 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.

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 Patches, a Domestic Short Hair mix up for adoption. 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.
