Want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in and around Milwaukee have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Wisconsin, 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 an adorable new companion, consider starting at a local adoption center like Rescue Gang, where Sarge $400 the dog 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.

If you 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. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
