Want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in and around Burlington have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout Massachusetts — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new fur child is at House Rabbit Network, where Angus the rabbit is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 in permanent homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create 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.
