Looking to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to place pets with families.

In the search for a lovable new friend, consider checking out a local facility like Westside Animals For Adoption, where Bella 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 in appropriate homes.

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 dog person, you might like Charlie, a Chihuahua 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.
