Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Chelmsford community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for an adorable new fur child is at Ruff Tales Rescue, where Ruffles the dog 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 appropriate homes.

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 Baby, a Pit Bull Terrier 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.
