Want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the Arlington community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in Massachusetts — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new family member is at Amsterdog, where Jake the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 in permanent 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 dog person, you might like Trixie, a Hound 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.
