Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new fur child is at Mspca Boston Animal Care And Adoption Center, where Elsa the parakeet is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 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.
