Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the Burlington community at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in the Burlington area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

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 begin the search for a lovable new fur child is at Diamond Dogs Rescue, where Mac the dog is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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 cat person, meet Lark, a Domestic Medium 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.
