See The Latest Adoptable Pets In The Leesburg Area

Pet News

Looking to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in Leesburg and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Virginia — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new family member is at Anne Arundel County Animal Care And Control, where Mow the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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.

If you 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 Mimi, 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.
