Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Kent community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in and around Kent have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Ohio, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new companion is at Portage Animal Protective League, where Purrince Fluffy Bottom the cat 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together 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 160002 LOOKING FOR OWNER, a Great Dane 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.
