Latest Pets Up For Adoption At Bayside-Douglaston Area Shelters

Looking to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing coronavirus 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, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for your new companion, consider beginning at a local facility like Long Island Rabbit Rescue Group, where Bennett the rabbit 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 put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Mom and baby, an American Shorthair 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.
