Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in and around White Plains 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 New York — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for an adorable new fur child, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Wagging Tails Dog Rescue Ny, where Winnie 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 permanent 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 cat person, meet Joey, a Persian 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.
