Adopt A Pet From Reston Area Shelters: New Dogs, Cats Added This Week

Do you want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to place pets with families.

In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider looking around at a local shelter like The Feline Foundation Of Greater Washington Inc, where Munchkin 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Adorable Abby, a Chihuahua mix up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
