Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Hopkinton community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in and around Hopkinton have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Rhode Island, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new friend is at Animal Rescue Rhode Island, where Norman the guinea pig 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 permanent homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Ferra, a Domestic Long 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.
