Latest Pets To Go Up For Adoption In The Herndon Area

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout Virginia — many of whom are located not too far from you. In the search for your new fur child, consider starting at a local shelter like Nova Pets Alive, where Velvet 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Mylo, 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.
