Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Tempe community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Tempe and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across Arizona, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new family member is at Lost Our Home Pet Foundation, where Benson the cat 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 in appropriate homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Cowboy, a Collie mix up for adoption. 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.
