Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Hingham community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Hingham and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Massachusetts — many of whom are located within driving distance. In the search for a new family pet, consider beginning at a local shelter like Scituate Animal Shelter, where Henrietta the cat 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Stella, a Boxer mix up for adoption. 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.
