Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Garden City community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in and around Garden City are still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Barrk Animal Rescue, where Nila 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 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 Harper, 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.
