Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in and around Green Bay are still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new friend is at Misfit Mutts Dog Rescue, where Monty the dog 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.

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. 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.
