Want to add to your family and give back to the Worcester community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Worcester are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider looking around at a local shelter like Second Chance Animal Shelter Inc, where Tompkins the cat 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.

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. If you’re a dog person, you might like Lizzie, an American Staffordshire 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.
