Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Massachusetts — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new fur child is at Kitty Connection Inc, where Quinby the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

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. If you’re a cat person, meet Jane and Julie, a Domestic Short 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.
