Want to add to your family and give back to the Boston community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters in Boston and environs have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

In the search for a new fur child, consider checking out a local facility like Masspaws, where Wyatt 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 appropriate 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.
