Pet Adoption In The Clarendon-Courthouse-Rosslyn Area: See The Latest Dogs, Cats & More

·14 min read

Looking to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in Clarendon-Courthouse-Rosslyn and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

In the search for an adorable new companion, consider starting at a local adoption center like K 9 Lifesavers, where Denali 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 in appropriate 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 Duncan, a Domestic Long 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.
