Looking to add to your family and do something good for the Chattanooga community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Tennessee, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new family member is at Pet Placement Center, where Aunt Viv the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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 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 Chestnut, a Tabby mix up for adoption. 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.
