Want to add to your family and do something good for the Rockville community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in the Rockville area are still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Maryland, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new family member is at Knine Rescue Inc, where Corazon the dog 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.

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, you might like Rio, a Husky up for adoption. Or 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.
