See The Latest Adoptable Pets At Vienna Area Shelters

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

Across Virginia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many are located in your area. In the search for a new fur child, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like 4paws Rescue Team, where Biden 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 in appropriate homes.

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 Blitzen, a Domestic Medium 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.
