Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Garden City community at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in Garden City and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new companion is at Pets4luv Foundation, where Jake 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.

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 Jack, 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.
