Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Worcester community at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider starting at a local animal shelter like Safe With Us Animal Rescue Inc, where Fefe the dog 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.

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 ENZO, 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.
