Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Upper Marlboro community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Upper Marlboro and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Maryland — many of whom are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new companion is at Prince Georges County Animal Services Division, where Calvin the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 put together 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 THATCHER, a Presa Canario 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.
