Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Boston community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Massachusetts — and many are located near you. In the search for your new companion, consider checking out a local animal shelter like Last Hope K9 Rescue, where Gretchen 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 Dumas Walker, a Coonhound 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.
