Want to add a new member to your family? Look no further than these Plymouth animal shelters for a pet available for adoption. Facilities in the Plymouth area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.
About 6.5 million companion animals are surrendered to adoption agencies each year nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. However, only around half of all animals are adopted each year, ASPCA data shows. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a new family member is at Standish Humane Society, where Topeka 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.
With help from our friends at Petfinder, Patch has compiled this week’s list of animals available for adoption near you. Whether you’re looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals could be the perfect fit for your family.
