Gramercy-Murray Hill Pets Who Need A Home: Wilson, Milo, Whitt & More

Looking to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in New York — and many of them are located near you. In the search for an adorable new friend, consider starting at a local facility like Pupstarz Rescue, where Wylie 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.

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 Wilson, 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.
