Brooklyn Area Adoptable Pets Of The Week: Baguette, Esmerelda & More

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to…

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Brooklyn community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new friend is at Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, where Esmerelda the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 Ankha Mustachio, a Domestic Short Hair 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.
