New York City Adoptable Pets: Meet Bruno & More


Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the New York City community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new family member is at a 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Bruno, a Terrier 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.
