Want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the Andover community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in Andover and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Mspca At Nevins Farm, where Avocado Toast the rat 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 put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
