Nice Neck Adoptable Pets Of The Week: Buddy, Jellybean, Aurora & Extra

Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Great Neck community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in Great Neck and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located in your area. In the search for a new family pet, consider beginning at a local adoption center like Tnr Utopia, where Lillie 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Buddy, a Great Dane 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.
