Looking to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new fur child is at Mspca Boston Animal Care And Adoption Center, where Acacia the rabbit is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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.

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. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
