If you’re looking to add a fuzzy ball of four-legged love and affection to your family, start with these animal shelters in the Havre de Grace area for a pet you can take home.
Millions of companion animals are surrendered or taken in each year by animal shelters nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. However, only around half of all shelter animals are adopted each year, according to ASPCA data. Looking to adopt a lovable new family member? A great place to begin your search is at Chesapeake Feline Association, where Noche the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption agency. 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.
With help from our friends at Petfinder, Patch has compiled this week’s list of animals available for adoption near you. Whether you’re looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals could be the perfect fit for your family.
