Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Rochester-Rochester Hills community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters 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 in Michigan — and many are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new friend is at Heavenly Paws Of Michigan, where Sarge the cat is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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.

If you 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. If you’re a cat person, meet Kiko, 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.
