Brownsville-East New York Pets Who Need A Home: Thea, Cullen, Aidan & More

Looking to add to your family and do something good for the Brownsville-East New York community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider starting at a local adoption center like Animal Care Centers Of Nyc Brooklyn, where Donovan the cat 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.

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 Thea, a Tabby 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.
