Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Norton community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many shelters are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Massachusetts — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new friend is at Masspaws, where Tiffany the dog 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 appropriate homes.

If you 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 Lesley and Patches, 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.
