Jackson Heights-Elmhurst Area Pet Adoption: Meet Nube & More

Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Jackson…

Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Jackson Heights-Elmhurst community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in and around Jackson Heights-Elmhurst have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout New York — many of whom are located within driving distance. In the search for a new friend, consider checking out a local facility like Second Chance Rescue, where Porky the dog 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Chloe 2 black kitten, 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.
