Want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Echo Park-Silver Lake are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new fur child is at Kitten Rescue, where Blackberry the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

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 Mama Lucy, 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.
