Looking to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in the Franklin area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for an adorable new friend is at Williamson County Animal Center, where Roxy the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

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 Ernie, a Mountain Cur up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too.
