Want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions.

In the search for an adorable new companion, consider starting at a local adoption center like Save The Animals Today A Nonprofit Corporation, where Cleo 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 Elfo, 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.
