Want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in Bedford and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Massachusetts — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for your new family pet, consider checking out a local shelter like House Rabbit Network, where Beatrice the rabbit 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.

If you 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 dog person, you might like Emma Lou, a Coonhound up for adoption. Or 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.
