Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in the Burrillville area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Rhode Island, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new fur child is at Community Cat Connection, where Shira the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Oodie, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
