Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

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 not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider starting at a local shelter like Last Hope K9 Rescue, where Coco 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 in permanent homes.

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 dog person, you might like Dottie Latture, a 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.
