Want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the Silver Spring community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Maryland, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for a new friend, consider beginning at a local shelter like Knine Rescue Inc, where Tank the dog 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Davey & Daphne, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or 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.
