Looking to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

In the search for your new family pet, consider looking around at a local shelter like Melrose Humane Society, where Benita 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 in permanent 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 cat person, meet Sundance, a Maine Coon 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.
