Farmingdale Pets Who Need A Home

Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals 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 without a home — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for your new companion, consider starting 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.

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. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
