Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in Plano and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across Texas, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located near you. In the search for an adorable new fur child, consider beginning at a local shelter like Second Chance Spca, where Jethro 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.

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 Alex, 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.
