Tysons Corner Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Jack, Moonlight, Sara & Sam & More

Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in Tysons Corner and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Virginia — many of whom are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new family member is at 4paws Rescue Team, where Sara & Sam the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Jack, an Australian Shepherd up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
