Kew Gardens-Briarwood Pets Waiting To Be Adopted: Basil, Charlie Doughnuts & More

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Kew Gardens-Briarwood community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in and around Kew Gardens-Briarwood have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Advocat Rescue, where Charlie Doughnuts the cat 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 permanent homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Basil, 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.
