Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Jamaica Plain community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Massachusetts — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for a new friend, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Mspca Boston Animal Care And Adoption Center, where Beaker the rat 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.

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 WAYNE, 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.
