Looking to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Virginia — and many are located in your area. In the search for your new friend, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Lost Dog And Cat Rescue Foundation, where Skipper 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.

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 cat person, meet Pixie’s kittens: Buttercup, 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.
