Adorable Adoptable Pets Of The Week In The Ashburn Area

Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Ashburn community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities in the Ashburn area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in Virginia — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for your new fur child, consider looking around at a local shelter like The Cats At Longstreet, where Sokka 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 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 Finley Patrick, 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.
