Latest Pets Up For Adoption At Upper West Side Area Shelters

Looking to add 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. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Upper West Side are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new fur child is at Paul The Cat Guy Inc, where Rio 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 in appropriate homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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 Celeste, a Domestic Short 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.
