Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across Arizona, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new family member is at Better Days Rescue, where Max the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 appropriate homes.

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 Fanta, a Shepherd 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.
